Schools in Berlin : Who benefits from the focal point allowance - and who is not

It should go to "appreciation" and therefore, to attract more teachers and educators in the focal point schools: Since January of 2018, some 18 million euros will be provided in order to help the most burdened educators with higher incomes. But still no Euro is gone. Instead, new problems occur in the implementation of the coalition will always emerge: WT-tariff expert Udo Mertens speaks of "amateurism pur".

On one of the tracks of education Secretary of state Mark Rackles (SPD) on Wednesday. His party colleague, the neukölln Deputy Joschka long Brinck, had wanted to bring by means of a request in experience, who, because of the allowance. As a response Rackles not only provided the list of all 56 of the focal point of schools, but also explained that those who will, why is it no or later in the money. Thus, a better position of the educator in secondary or special schools is "not possible", because their pay group - is, in General, the 9 - already the highest for educators.

but That is not all. Is tricky it educators the free carrier: you do not get the money namely according to Rackles "immediately", rather, the Senate and the associations test, in which the Form of the higher payment can be made. But what does that mean? Torsten Wischnewski-Ruschin, the responsible technical officer at the joint welfare Association, explained that it was "difficult", the higher salaries, backdated to 1. To pay August, as it should apply to the teachers and the educators of the country, because then the carriers would all have to "pay tax and health insurance contributions re-calculate". He regretted that there were 2018 "is not a faster solution." The next meeting on this issue was scheduled for January.

It should be backdated to 1. August more money

give The "quicker solution" failed because the coalition had for months, undecided how to help the schools best. In the meantime balanced hours discount for focal point teachers accounted for as a solution because of the shortage of Teachers. As the coalition's allowance, and, therefore, the initially envisaged Teacher came back, warned the educators, they did not want to be suspended more and were therefore included in the focal point control. Only then, the collective have been knit case is clear. The group would need to consider these consequences, tariff expert Mertens. Now you have the "curse of the good deed".

The focal point allowance goes back to the Initiative of the SPD parliamentary group. The education-policy spokeswoman Maja Lasic is now expected that the problems will be solved. It was "of course, our political objective," that the better position for all of the attack retrospectively – also for the employees of the free carriers. Lasic is not with the criticism faced, that the adopted poverty rate was not sufficient as the sole criterion for the focal point allowance, because many of the difficult schools were not included. It remains, however, that this rate was "suitable of all the measuring instruments most likely to". Regina Kittler from the Left said it was "a first step". Marianne Burkert-Eulitz (Green) recalled that the scheme should be by the end of 2019 evaluated: Anything is chiseled "in stone".

70 up to 300 Euro for educators

As reported, has been approved the money first, only for the two-year budget 2018/19. Then the effects are to be considered. It is, however, difficult, as the focal point for educators in the money then take it off For around 2300 teachers the 300 Euro on a monthly basis, for the still unknown number of educators, depending on pay group 70 to around 300 euros, if you count to the circle of those Concerned and to train the employees of secondary and funding.

The WT has already been pointed out in the past on a number of problems in the implementation of the benefits - for example, in the case of a threatened, for educators to the possible phasing out of the Higher wages would have even less money than now. This should, however, be excluded, is the declared will of the coalition. Criticism is also, that poverty rates were laid by 2017/18 based on The could lead to some teachers get no money, even though their schools meet in the current school year the rate of 80 percent for children from the transfer of families.

two secondary schools including

In the relevant school year 2017/18, this related to 20 schools in Neukölln, 17 in the middle, nine in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, four in Reinickendorf, Tempelhof-Schöneberg, two in Spandau and Lichtenberg.
