Frankfurt (dpa/lhe) - Hesse's Minister of Education Alexander Lorz (CDU) draws a positive interim balance of the "Löwenstark" funding program, which is intended to support schoolchildren in coping with the consequences of the corona virus. Of the total of around 150 million euros from state and federal funds, 120 million euros have already been spent on specific measures or planned by the schools, he said on a visit to Frankfurt's Ernst Reuter School II, which is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
The money is used to finance, among other things, remedial courses and homework help to close learning gaps from the corona pandemic. In addition, there are joint offers outside of the classroom with cooperation partners such as foundations or associations. The program "Lion strong - the education kick" started a year ago. It is designed for at least two years.
