the head of The German teachers ' Association, Heinz-Peter Meidinger, fought back against the allegation of widespread racism in German schools. "The fact that there isn't a solid spread of racism in schools, the teachers have been in the grip of this presentation I would like to vehemently oppose," he said of the "world" (Monday).
schools are a mirror of society, "that is to say, there there are racism. However, it is not so that schools would look the other way systematically – on the contrary, The schools have the eye.“ Nevertheless, teachers should be particularly sensitive to racism, and know how you with certain Statements in the classroom can deal with it. "Many a teacher who teaches an academic subject, will not fall so easily," said Meidinger, who directs a school in Bavaria.
The Chairman of the Association of education (VBE), Udo Beckmann, the situation is critical : "We would be doing a disservice to speak in this context of individual cases and the importance of the issue, so dismiss." There is a need for a deeper confrontation with racism as a Form of violence in schools, as Beckmann.Updated Date: 28 June 2020, 15:20
