Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) – The districts in the southwest are calling for more teachers and specialists for better inclusion in schools. “If children and young people with disabilities can only take part in lessons in schools if they bring external school support, then inclusion remains incomplete,” said Joachim Walter, President of the District Council, on Tuesday. The support of the children and adolescents by a companion from outside leads to extra treatment for those affected.

For the districts, the issue of school support is also about money: “The state must adapt its teaching resources as well as teaching content and methodology so that all pupils with disabilities can be taught successfully at all schools without additional staff financed by the districts.” , demanded the Tübingen district administrator. Until then, the state should reimburse the municipalities for the costs of external school attendants.
