Your requirement: alternating lessons. Half of the class should take turns joining in from home.
Education department head Sylvia Weber (57, SPD) finds it difficult: “There are some schools here where almost no pupil has a computer at home.”
Nevertheless: At vocational schools, the “change model” will now be introduced until January 31, 2021. In addition, one checks whether it is also necessary for the upper levels of general education schools. Decision in two weeks, depending on the infectious development.
Health Department Head Stefan Majer (62, Greens): “The concentrated and professional approach of our health department to evaluate every outbreak in educational institutions individually continues to help keep the number of infections low in schools and daycare centers.
That’s what the students say
Patricia P. (19, new upper secondary school): “We don’t feel protected enough by the current measures. And: cold, colder, classroom. We cannot concentrate properly when ventilating. There is a noisy construction site next to our school, we don’t understand the teachers. “
Nassira Benguerich (18, new upper secondary school): “In Frankfurt alone we count over 420 schools that start school between 7.30 and 8 a.m. What’s the point of having two households outside when we’re stuck next to each other on the buses? “
Andre Karavilovski (17, Gymnasium Riedberg): “If you don’t start with concepts such as hybrid lessons and stricter measures now, the flu wave in January could lead to complete school closings. Degree in the Abitur preparation is particularly annoying. “
Hamza Mohamed (13, Helene Lange School): “I feel like a guinea pig. The windows stay open all the time, we can no longer concentrate in class. I am in favor of alternating lessons, as this ensures that the distances can be kept. “
Lara Maccarrone (15, Musterschule): “We are 600 students who use the same stairs. I have a risk person at home, I don’t want to infect them! We knowingly have corona cases at school, but we are not told anything, not even the people sitting next to us are sent home! “
Gabriel Hanika (17, StadtschülerInnenrat): “We demand the participation of the pupils in the organization of the current school operations. We are for a change model. And: we are calling for more investments in the digital sector so that this pandemic can be overcome without major educational gaps. “
Imane Zegrar (16), German gentlemen’s school: “I want classes to be shared or online lessons at home. I feel much safer doing this because I also have high-risk patients at home and am an asthmatic myself. Six hours under the mask is far too exhausting. And the distances to the neighbors are far too short. “
Hannes Kaulfersch (17, City School Student Council): “At the moment we have the case that students who sat next to those who tested positive still have to go to school, are not supposed to be in quarantine, and are not given a test. That is irresponsible with regard to current events. “
Mila Eveling (16, Riedberg High School): “There are 30 of us in courses, and with each course I am with different people. I am afraid that I will infect my family. That’s why we want at least a hybrid lesson. That we help other people, help the teachers – because they are not allowed to protest. “
