German section no longer viable in European school Luxembourg II

Proposal for new balanced timetable

Low registration and transferrals out of European School Mamer

The rate of registration of new children to European school Lux II is so low that the school now wants to radically change the rules of registration, ‘forcing parents with kids in the DE, FR and EN sections to send their kids to Lux II, except in certain circumstances.’

There are now only a handful of children (5) in the German maternelle section of Lux II. It seems that the school will go through the motions of insisting that all DE go to Lux II, then finally accept that DE parents will not cooperate and then German will, by default, join the privileged Baltic Rim languages of Lux I. After only 1 term, the German section at Lux II is no longer viable.images

This was predicted, of course, because everyone knew Germans will not transport their children across the entire breadth of Luxembourg just to be discriminated against. But the grey-haired male bureaucrats, who don’t have to accompany those children to school, don’t want to hear that. It doesn’t fit the plan.

Black is white, and there is no advantage to having your young children schooled next to your place of work rather than in another town.
