Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - According to a newspaper report, the state wants to start a model project on "Primary schools without grades" from the coming school year. This was announced by Minister of Education Theresa Schopper (Greens) to the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" and the "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" (Monday). Accordingly, at 39 schools, the students from the first to the fourth grade should no longer receive grades. "In the end, we want to compare the quality of the teaching and the performance of the students," the minister is quoted as saying in the report. Such a test run had already been agreed in the Green-Black coalition agreement.
Almost ten years ago there was already such a pilot project in the south-west: in the 2013/2014 school year, ten primary schools took part in the "Primary schools without grades" project. In 2017, Schopper's predecessor Susanne Eisenmann (CDU) announced the end of the project.
