StGIS Public Value Study

A Public Value Study

What Makes StGIS Valuable for the Region?

The education sector is pivotal in tackling societal challenges like digitalization and climate change, yet it’s evolving, notably due to increasing privatization. This shift raises questions about equal opportunities, as access to private education often depends on parental income and academic backgrounds. However, private schools are also tasked with demonstrating their societal contributions to maintain their operational license. StGIS embraces this challenge, focusing our research on a critical question: What makes StGIS valuable for the region?

"The results of the study show that StGIS is valuable for the region"
