the push by The Union group Vice Carsten Linnemann, children who do not speak English, does not allow for the elementary school, met with sharp criticism.
Left-Boss Katja Kipping told the German press Agency: With his Statements to elementary school children Linnemann go to “vote catching in the right swamp”.
Kipping accused the CDU politician, to mix the theme with messages about violence of adults. “Is not known to him, that the perpetrators of Frankfurt, who obviously had a psychotic disorder, is fluent in German and Swiss has virtually the same immigrant background as Alice rye?”
Linnemann had said in the “Rheinische Post” with reference to “new parallel societies”: “in Order to bring it to the point: A child who barely speaks English and understands, has to search on a primary school means nothing”. For affected children, he suggested a pre-school compulsory. If necessary, an Enrolment must also be reset.
It would have bells to ring all of the alarm, if in the case of language tests, such as in Duisburg, Germany, more than 16 percent of future first-graders no German could, said Linnemann. “Until deep into the middle class, I witness parents who send their children to private schools, because the level in state schools is declining.”
he had baths also Mentions the incidents in free, the fact on the Frankfurt platform, and the sword attack in Stuttgart. All that to rummage the people and befeuere the concern is that new parallel societies may arise.
The SPD education politician Marja-Liisa völler’s said the dpa, the statements linnemann starts to be “really Fremdschämen and populist bluster, as in election times”. One could not exclude the children from the primary school, just because they were speaking bad English. The create parallel societies and long-term integration problems instead of solving them. “The children are right there where you are. A better learning environment for all children at school classroom with peers, she doesn’t exist.”
the schleswig-Holstein Minister of education, Karin Prien (CDU) had rejected Linnemann vehemently. Prien language in the “süddeutsche Zeitung” of “populist nonsense” and “completely the wrong way”. These children were rather “in the context of the rule schooling” in the English-as-second-language classes.
the President of The German teachers Association, Heinz-Peter Meidinger told the German press Agency on Monday, Linnemann I, of course, right that the actual linguistic promotion would have to be in front of the elementary school. Children should undergo Meidingers view long before the Enrolment mandatory language tests.
“I am a absolute supporter of the Federal government, the nationwide language tests in Three – and four-year-old.” There are approaches for this in some countries, but unfortunately, passing then to little, because trained personnel were missing, and primary school teachers lack of product anyway.
criticism of the advance of the Union fraktionsvizes comes from the Association of education (VBE). The claim that children could not a German, not instruct, was a Declaration of bankruptcy of the policy, said the VBE-Chairman Udo Beckmann of the dpa. In addition, it is discriminatory. “Because it boils down to is, that especially children with a migrant background, or flight experience would be put back.”
