Many women in Germany are single parents, unemployed and without a well-founded professional qualification. How can their quality of life be improved, and at the same time, their professional integration achieved? How can they get involved in processes of empowerment?

How do religious or ideological orientations of teachers affect their professional thinking and acting?
There is a serious research deficit regarding this question, especially in Europe and Germany.
Therefore, we follow the question of how the religiosity of teachers affects their professional tasks - whether as a supporting resource or as a problematic disruptive factor.
To pursue this question, we – building up on pilot studies for the development of suitable scales –take an exemplary look on the focus on religiosity and the religious beliefs in a greater invested study with teachers and investigate their connections with professional convictions.
