Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: GEW calls for better educational conditions in MV

Schwerin (dpa/mv) - The teachers' and educators' union GEW called for better educational conditions in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on International Children's Day. The group sizes in childcare had to be reduced, demanded the two GEW state chairmen Annett Lindner and Nico Leschinski on Wednesday. A skilled worker should therefore not look after more than four children in the crèche, eight in kindergarten and twelve in after-school care. There are currently six children in the crèche, 15 in the kindergarten and 22 in the after-school care center.

In addition, every school needs at least one school social worker. Schools need to be inclusive and take into account the individual abilities of all students. The teachers needed healthy working conditions. Sufficient staff must also be provided at the vocational schools.

The two GEW chairmen emphasized that every euro spent on education is well invested. Especially in times of crisis, education is the best thing that can be given to children. Minister of Education Simone Oldenburg (left) assured the state government: "The children can rely on us to do everything we can to ensure that they all have the same opportunities for a good life."

The welfare organizations in MV meanwhile criticized that there is still no nationwide early support for children with disabilities in the north-east. "Children with disabilities or developmental delays are entitled to interdisciplinary early support," explained Bernd Tünker, chairman of the League of Leading Welfare Organizations. "But after more than 30 negotiation dates in the past five years for a state framework agreement, there are still no signatures under the agreement that would make this support for many children possible in the first place."

So far there are only seven in MV and therefore far too few places that families with children could offer complex early support. Especially in the countryside there is a lack of offers.
