Hamburg’s school senator Rabe: Lockdown will leave deep marks
Hamburg’s school senator Ties Rabe (SPD) has described the corona lockdown as a great burden for the students. “It will leave deep marks on the children and young people, not only in the area of cognitive education, but also in the area of social education, including personal development,” said the Senator. Most of the students affected had to accept 13 weeks of absence from classes last spring. In the so-called distance teaching, the learning will not have the usual quality despite all efforts. Shortly before Christmas, Hamburg lifted the requirement to attend schools. If possible, the children and young people should be taught digitally at home. If necessary, you can continue to attend school.
