While the political knowledge of elementary school children is increasingly becoming the subject of scientific studies, there have been hardly any research results on the political knowledge or democratic value orientations of students in the transition from primary to secondary school. In political socialization research, it is largely unclear how political knowledge and democratic value orientations develop in the first year of lower secondary school and on which factors (e.g., school characteristics, social background) this development depends. Furthermore, the question of whether - and if so, how - the development of democratic value orientations is accompanied by the development of political knowledge remains unclear. In order to close this research gap, the panel study "Demokratie Leben Lernen 2.0: Politische Sozialisation zu Beginn der Sekundarstufe I" surveys lower secondary school students in the Giessen region and thus aims to identify possible correlations as well as influencing factors.
