After the Pentecost vacation on June 15th, more and more students will begin going back to schools. This worries some parents in Corona times. They would prefer not to let their schoolchildren out of the house to protect them. However, that is not possible. School attendance is compulsory in Germany. However, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Culture has provided exceptions to this: children who have a previous illness, such as asthma, do not have to go to class. This also applies to children who live in a household with people from a risk group. Parents can report this to the schools “unbureaucratically and without a certificate,” said Minister of Culture Susanne Eisenmann in a letter to the legal guardians. Parents who, despite the hygiene regulations – distance in the classroom, washing hands, small groups – have further concerns, “should bring their worries and fears to the attention of the school.” Stefan Meißner, press officer for the Tübingen regional council responsible for schools, said this when approached by tünews INTERNATIONAL.
