That was evident at the weekend in Flensburg, for example. The re Fabian Halbe, head of the Fridtjof Nansen School, published a letter to the parents on the school website. In the letter, he also clearly criticized the opening policy of the state government in Kiel: “We consider the decision of the ministry to maintain classroom teaching regardless of the infection situation in Flensburg to be wrong.” Halbe received a lot of support for this on social media.
The reupon the school supervisory authority intervened and “explained to him his options for organizing the school.” A modified »clarification« can now be found on the school’s homepage.
The re critics accused the Ministry of Education of blocking social media users who attacked the Saxon school policy and, above all, had written against the opening course at primary schools.
The re is a lot of discussion in the ministry’s digital networks: “However, we have clearly and transparently stated in our netiquette that a minimum of respectful discussion culture must be observed.”
The culture of discussion has meanwhile rather degenerated into a non-culture and has “meanwhile assumed an extent that is no longer tolerable”. It is therefore clear: “Anyone who violates the basic rules of discussion, which are actually taken for granted, can be blocked. We also have a duty to care for the (mental) health of our employees. ”
Bavaria’s Prime Minister Markus Söder meanwhile declared the return of primary school children to alternating lessons – despite the unclear infection situation from the mutated corona viruses – as the right path. “No, it’s not a mistake,” said the CSU chief on Monday before a meeting of the party executive in Munich.
The next ten days will show how the openings affected the spread of the virus.
Government spokesman Steffen Seibert expressed himself more skeptically: “It is very important that you take a very careful look at whether and if and to what extent this will in turn lead to changes in the infection process.” Chancellor Merkel had spoken out in favor of the children returning to the facilities at a later date , originally agreed on March 1st.
“Don’t open a single elementary school”
The virus is not interested in the whole discussion about different forms of face-to-face teaching,” Mayor Oliver Krügel said in an interview with SPIEGEL, “Anyone who understands how the virus works cannot open a single primary school with a clear conscience, and daycare centers at most in a real emergency. «
On Monday, it quickly became apparent how little planning security there is currently with regard to schools and daycare centers: After just one day, for example, most of the schoolchildren in Nuremberg learned that they would have to study from home again from Tuesday – the corona numbers are too high.
