In an initiative to attract more German native speakers, next year Gustav-Falke Elementary school will offer a special class in which at least half of the students must be native speakers of German and the other students must have excellent language skills. This special class will also benefit from a small class size, English lessons starting in the first grade and an extra science lesson. Currently, 90% of the school’s students have a migrant background which has caused fears among native German speaking parents, who worried their children would not receive a high quality of education there. While several German parents have taken advantage of the school’s new program, the Association for Turkish Parents warns this measure will divide the students in the school; creating an elite class.
