Thuringia | State student council criticizes classroom teaching for final classes
The Thuringian State Student Council criticizes classroom teaching in final classes. The special focus on the final classes is to be welcomed, according to a press release. However, one doubts the meaningfulness of the presence of the students. The teachers would have given the present students tasks to solve independently, which could just as easily have been processed at home and submitted via the school cloud. In times of Corona, this means taking an avoidable risk, according to the student council. As it is also said, video conferences should be used more frequently and across the board. This applies not only to the final years, but to all grades.

The y are handed out in grains on Friday afternoons from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the fire station; Friday also starts in Lengefeld, Mühlhausen and Oppershausen.

In the rural communities of Unstrut-Hainich, Vogtei, in Grabe, Saalfeld, Seebach and Windeberg and Nottertal-Heilinger Heights, the masks are delivered by post. In many other places such as Bollstedt, Görmar, Höngeda, Rodeberg or Ammern, the issue begins on Saturday.
District Administrator Harald Zanker (SPD) had informed the mayor on Thursday in a conference call about the action. A total of 1.2 million pieces – ten for each resident – should be issued as quickly as possible. The background to this is the decision by the Prime Minister’s Conference on Tuesday to introduce stricter mask requirements for shops and public transport from next week. OP or FFP2 masks should become mandatory there. A corresponding ordinance by the state of Thuringia is not yet in force.
