On World Teachers' Day of all days, the Education and Training Association issued a clear warning to the state government. Because if you believe a survey of school administrations, many facilities go into emergency operation just a few weeks after school starts.
Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - According to a study by the Education and Training Association (VBE), many schools in Baden-Württemberg are having dramatic problems covering the scheduled lessons just a few weeks after the start of the school year. According to their own statements, around 10 percent of primary schools, 20 percent of secondary schools and 40 percent of special education and counseling centers have problems securing regular operations, as the VBE criticized on Wednesday in Stuttgart. "Many of these schools have long since arrived in emergency mode," said VBE state chairman Gerhard Brand. A total of 884 schools took part in the study.
He also looks with concern at the results of the special education and counseling centers: four out of ten schools could not maintain regular operations, i.e. no longer offer some main and minor subjects. You would have to switch to emergency mode. "In the field of special education, these results are simply no longer justifiable," said Brand.
According to a survey, a majority of 50 to 60 percent of school administrations across all types of schools call for the abandonment of major educational projects such as all-day education and inclusion. In order to increase the number of teachers, primary school teachers would have to be paid better, classes reduced and assignments lowered, according to the school administrations surveyed.
Since it was not based on scientific criteria, the study is not representative according to the VBE.
