AfD sounds the alarm on Duisburg schools

    In 13 of the schools, the foreign component is 100 percent, according to a response of the North Rhine-Westphalian state government to a request from the AfD.

    In 932 of the 2 750 public primary schools in the state, the proportion of immigrant students is at least 25 percent. In three-quarters of these, it is 50 to 75 percent.

    The proportion of immigrants is also high at the secondary schools. At four out of five primary schools, at least 25 percent of children with foreign roots are registered. At the grammar schools it affects more than half.

    The spokesman for education of the AFD parliamentary group in the state parliament, Helmut Seifen, has sounded a warning against this development. “At many primary schools in North Rhine-Westphalia, the proportion of German children in a class has fallen to less than a quarter.”

    There is a “developing educational emergency” Seifen said and it is being done on purpose. PISA studies have shown that the learning success of all students in a class decreases significantly when the immigrant share exceeds 20 percent, the former high school director argued.

    Seifen has called for the adherence to basic standards, as in Scandinavian countries: “Children are admitted to school only if they speak the language so well that they are easily able to follow the lessons.”

    In 2015, the proportion of citizens with a migrant background in the 490 000-strong city of Duisburg was 29.5 percent.

    Duisburg, an old German industrial city boasts the world’s biggest inland port. North Rhine-Westphalia, where Duisburg is located, has seen leftist voter support crash from more than 60 percent to 31 percent in last year’s state election.

    The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany on the other hand, has more than doubled its support in some Duisburg districts, while the SPD lost a fifth of its voters.

    • Wow. Look at those numbers. Entire schools in Germany, 100% “foreign” (third-world, Muslim?) students. A full third of Duisberg are 25% “foreign” (and three-quarters of those are 50-75% “foreign”)

      And yet, we’re told the real danger is anti-semitism. That White Genocide isn’t “real” and only not-sees want to preserve the White race. Odd.

      Enjoy your “diversity” North Rhine-Westphalia, and get out those prayer rugs, you’re going to need them.
