Case rejected child of a AfDlers : personally, I find it hard to understand

It may happen that a law will, as politicians want. Education Senator Sandra Scheeres (SPD) on Wednesday in the house of representatives in a short discussion of the freedoms of a private school. Must not be denied the admission of a child, because of the political attitude of the parents fit? The AfD had put the issue in the short term, on the agenda. In principle, Yes, says Scheeres and relies on an assessment of their lawyers for the case, a Waldorf school, which had declined in the past year, the subsidiary of AfD members. Nevertheless, they made it clear that the result of their own setting contradicts: "I personally find it hard to understand that children are made responsible for areas in which their parents are politically active". Whether it's go to the AfD or other party is her.

however, only "from a moral perspective". As the authority continued Scheeres, have to take different laws: The basic law, the guarantee that free schools are likely to pick and choose their students; the General equal treatment act, that the "issue of political convictions" do not cover; and the prohibition of discrimination in the education law, the not however apply to private schools. There was also "no legal need for action", in plain text: no need for a change in the law.

A Senate representative referred the meeting to the fact that the education act "for good reason" waive the prohibition of Discrimination for private schools; it is a private contract, for the freedom of contract applies. As an example, he pointed to schools in Church-run institutions, which are likely to pick and choose their pupils according to their religious confession, even if they did it in Berlin, in the practice. This was confirmed by the Federal constitutional court, which is why the Senate should not make regulations.

Hardorp: school as a community of values

Andreas Wegener, Berlin's state Chairman of the Association of German private schools, told the daily mirror: "We make no attitude tests." The inclusion of children in private schools mean, however, that you make a contract, "and then you should get along well". It is a question of whether the adults were on both sides willing, for the good of the child to cooperate. Schools should not expect that parents will reject the belief, which represents the school.

Detlef Hardorp, education spokesman for the Waldorf schools in Berlin-Brandenburg, the order said that Waldorf schools are open in principle to all children. But in schools, communities would Value, and it is important that the parents stand behind the pedagogical approach of the school.

He also explained why the positions of the AfD agreed with those of the Waldorf schools. The first community school in Germany was 100 years ago, in the Stuttgart Waldorf school was founded in. Also welcome to classes at the Berlin Waldorf would be experienced by schools as an enrichment. The AfD, however, "is against community schools and relies on exclusion".
