Schools in Berlin : Not poor enough for the focal point allowance

in Front of the great Feast of the great frustration: The energy of the SPD-driven and with million of expense related to the focal point allowance currently leads to great confusion and anger. Because many teachers and educators, the salary increase were already for sure, not now benefit. In addition, the WT warns of new injustices.

Particularly the level of Anger at the schools that go out empty, even though the requirement for the bonus is given for payment: This condition consists in the fact that over 80 percent of the students from Hartz-IV-households must come and, therefore, means learning (lmb). What many schools do not, however, was clear: the Decisive factor is the lmb - rate this year, but the year-on-year is not. Who had in 2017/18 but "only" 79 percent of poor children, is not to the circle of the schools, their staff gets backdated to August the salary supplements.

Some of the information is outdated

A further source of anger, the pitfalls of the statistics are as follows: Individual schools met the lmb-rate, although de facto 2017/18, but had given all the children – perhaps because they had not submitted their Berlin pass. Thus, these schools were on the paper below the Threshold, so that their employees go out empty. The question of whether the correct Figures can be delivered, did not answer the education administration on Tuesday.

In addition, there is the chagrin of dozens of schools that are, in fact, just under 80 percent. "The unrest is understandable", said SPD education politician Maja Lasic on request. She recalled that the coalition wanted to at least pay a rate of 75 percent of the award. Then the circle of beneficiaries would have been so great that the target of millions, would have only served for minor charges, which would be dissipated in the effect: The bonus payments are intended to reduce the turnover of staff in schools - a hope that also shares the representation of the interests of Berlin's principal.

"Somewhere you have to draw the line"

The Chairman Astrid buses do not mind the excitement of the 80-percent threshold: "Somewhere you have to draw the line," said the head of the school at the köllnische Heide. You do not understand, how it is erroneous lmb-information can come from: in your experience, all of the parents, the Berlin passports for proof of need. "The premium is good," stands for buses, at the school of the lmb share of 97 percent. Lasic stressed once again, however, that you will not want to come back as soon as the teacher shortage is so acute to hours discounts instead of premiums.

The WEIGHT had already practiced in the previous week's criticism of the embodiment of the focal point allowance, and complained that it would create "new injustices", since about coordinating educator and integration specialist educator, assumed initially empty. In addition, the educators remained in the focal point of day-care centres outside.

the Former is already discussed, and also the Latter could soon change, however – in the context of the Good-Kita-law, in consequence of Berlin costs around 300 million Euro. "We want to clear a monthly salary allowance for teachers in day care centers in strained social," said the youth, Senator Sandra Scheeres (SPD), the daily mirror. It is supported by the SPD parliamentary group. The youth Affairs spokesperson Melanie kühn man and Scheeres want to spend the additional Federal million for a cost-free Breakfast, the Expansion of child day care and the training of newcomers.
