Traduction en anglais : Medical examination of pupils in German schools at school entry : procedures in countries outside Germany and considerations based thereon.
In Germany, all pupils are subjected to medical examination at school entry.
This is in fact one of the primary tasks of the School Health Services in respect of importance and the amount of work involved.
Nevertheless, neither are these results properly evaluated, nor has their epidemiological relevance been explored.
The examination criteria are not uniform, and results are therefore greatly at variance.
This has given rise to much criticism when comparing the german approach to that in other countries.
With particular reference to experiences in Great Britain, Australia and the Netherlands, we should discourage a general medical examination at school entry that focusses on the status of each individual from a medical point of view, as has been the practice in Germany to date.
