Ausschlaggebend für die aktuellen Debatten und Reformvorschläge rund um das Berufsbildungssystem und die damit verbundene Berufsbildungspolitik, sind vielfältig. Zum einen kam es innerhalb des letzten Jahrzehnts zu einer folgenschweren Umwälzung im Berufsbildungssystem: Die duale Ausbildung verliert zunehmend ihre dominante place, während gleichzeitig das Übergangsystem, in dem Jugendliche keine qualifizierte Berufsausbildung, sondern unterschiedliche Maßnahmen der Berufsvorbereitung vermittelt bekommen, wächst. Dabei mündet heutzutage nicht einmal mehr ein Fünftel der Ausbildungsanfänger ohne und nur noch zwei Fünftel mit Hauptschulabschluss in das duale method, die Mehrheit wird im Übergangssystem aufgefangen (Baethge, Solga und Wieck 2007). Dabei conflict die traditionelle Stärke des dualen structures, leistungsschwächere Jugendliche ohne Zugangsbarriere den Weg in eine qualifizierte Ausbildung und in den Arbeitsmarkt zu ermöglichen. Die Integrationswirkung der dualen Ausbildung an der ersten Schwelle von der Schule in eine Ausbildung ist seit zwei Jahrzenten nicht mehr gegeben (Severing 2014, 278). Betrachtet guy dabei die aktuelle Arbeitsmarktsituation, scheint diese durch zwei widersprüchliche Entwicklungen gekennzeichnet zu sein. Zum einen haben Betriebe immer mehr Schwierigkeiten, ihre angebotenen Ausbildungsstellen zu besetzen, so blieben 2012 über 33.000 Ausbildungsplätze unbesetzt. Zum anderen gibt es immer noch viele junge Menschen, denen der Einstieg in die Ausbildung nicht unmittelbar gelingt (Berufsbildungsbericht 2013, 5). Des Weiteren vollzieht sich ein Strukturwandel in der Ökonomie von der industriellen Produktion zur Dienstleistungs- und Wissensökonomie.

Das organisatorische Großgebilde, welches einen Staatsapparat funktionieren lässt, heißt Verwaltung. In ihr soll der Großteil der in einem Staatssystem anfallenden Verwaltungsaufgaben mittels Behörden ausgeführt werden. Die qualitative Entwicklung Deutschlands vom „Policey-Staat“ zum „Daseinsvorsorge-Staat“ und zum Dienstleister für die Bürger förderte die horizontale Dekonzentration. Vor allem nach dem 1. Weltkrieg musste die Verwaltung ihre service provider rationell und sachgerecht anpassen, um den Aufgaben der Zeit gerecht werden zu können.
Die Entstehung und Entwicklung der Sonderbehörden ist mit dieser gesamtgesellschaftlichen Entwicklung eng verflochten, weswegen hier auch ein Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit liegen soll. Des Weiteren soll der Begriff „Sonderbehörde“ definiert und von der „Allgemeinen Verwaltung“ abgegrenzt werden. Neben weiteren deskriptiven Darstellungen soll jedoch auch die Frage geklärt werden, wie denn die interorganisatorischen Beziehungen dieser zwei Verwaltungstypen funktionieren. Wo liegen die Vorteile der Sonderbehörden im Vergleich zu „traditionellen“ Verwaltungseinrichtungen, und lässt sich daraus ein development weg von der allgemeinen Verwaltung hin zur Sonderbehörde erkennen? Bevor es zu einer abschließenden Problembeurteilung kommt, soll eine tabellarische Zuordnung der Sonderbehörden zu den entsprechenden Ministerien auf Landesebene am Beispiel des Freistaates Bayern einen Überblick verschaffen.
Auf Grund des relativ speziellen Themas dieses Referates konnten nur wenige ausführliche Texte ausfindig gemacht werden. Der umfassendste textual content stammt aus dem Jahr 1969. Deswegen wurden einzelne Aspekte der weiteren Entwicklung der Sonderbehörden im net recherchiert, um im textual content dargestellte Aussagen verifizieren zu können. Soweit dies nicht möglich battle, wird sich im Folgenden an der angegebenen (älteren) Literatur orientiert.
