In order: The web individual school in Bochum has been active for 20 years, until now the exams under the NRW School Act have never been a problem. However, after the number of examinees increased, the Arnsberg administrative district asked the examinees to register only for the final examination in their respective federal states. Principal Sarah Lichtenberger raged against DER WESTEN: “Our students, who have been preparing for years, have no chance of graduating because the subject combinations in the federal states are completely different. Without an education, they can not start their training in the summer. ”

Lichtenberger has made Education Minister Gebauer responsible: “During the lockdown, all universities offered distance and digital exams, but according to the Ministry of Education, we are not allowed to do so, even though we have been teaching in this way for years. It is an absurdity and an injustice that we will defend ourselves against. In this situation, no one thinks about the children and their future. It is an absolute dead end for them. ” Compromise proposals such as renting large rooms for exams or using retired teachers as honorary judges were also rejected by the authorities.

We will have to keep fighting in the coming years, but I am optimistic. Yvonne Gebauer will be confronted before the election with the claim that 60 young people, some of whom are severely disabled, missed their exams. ” Namely, those who had withdrawn from their exams.

Annett Porzel (53) from Bavaria is also relieved. Her son Marlon (18) is autistic, cannot be taught at a regular school, and took his final exams at the individual web school in Bochum a few days ago. The 53-year-old describes to DER WESTEN that she is worried about being admitted to the exam: “We had a plan B if Marlon really should not have been allowed to be tested. We should have registered him in Bavaria as requested. But Bayern have completely different exam criteria, Marlon would have had to learn a whole subject more in his preparation. ” In her opinion, it was almost impossible for him to have passed like that.

Marlon and all the other young people would have given their all in two years and despite Corona for being ideally prepared by the time of the exam. Annett Porzel: “Arnsberg’s administrative district said that control would have been too much administrative work. I’m just scratching my head! It’s about our children, it’s about inclusion. You still have a rocky path in life – and the country wants put up obstacles again? ”

She calls for the establishment and support of additional individual schools and criticizes the lack of communication between parents and the state: “No one has ever spoken to us parents, neither from the ministry nor from the administrative circle.
