I don't want to question the usability of tagging the ISCED-level, but
for German schools it doesn't provide the necessary information (but
age groups wouldn't provide that either): the main three types of
schools (Hauptschule, Realschule and Gymnasium) do all get the same
ISCED tag [1], and two of them also belong to two isced-levels.
