This contribution gives an overview of the German Report on Education. Published every two years, the indicator-based report takes a holistic approach to the German education system, from preschool to primary and secondary school to adult education. After briefly introducing Germany's demography, its economic situation, and its investments in education, the article outlines the scope of the report and details its target audiences. Following this, the contribution describes the legislative framework of the report, highlighting its legal foundation in Germany's Basic Law and its part in the strategy of educational monitoring in Germany. Then, it addresses the report's conceptual foundations, with its underlying characteristics, understanding of education, and indicator concept. Finally, the contribution presents findings from the German Report on Education 2020 about students' heterogeneous competence range when entering the different lower secondary education tracks.
