The school house, where my daughter attends elementary school, has a proportion of foreigners of about 90 percent. What the teachers do every day for the Integration, impressed me. Not to forget the youth in the communities, sports clubs or help with homework for those whose parents are both working and due to the lack of knowledge of the language can not help.
Unfortunately, ghosts by the media is often only the dark sides of Migration. Difficulties around immigration in the Social security or wage dumping by economic refugees. You need to discuss, no question.
Not only to the Nati

As a child, Italian-Spanish immigrants, I know how hard it is for many to find their place. And there is still racism, because I know close-up of the latest examples of young Secondos.
diploma for the “problem case”
I also know of Establishments, the teacher chooses aware of a “problem case” that has nowhere else to Chance. This master takes care of often over the years to his “problem”.

A High on the teachers!
the Same applies to the integration classes in primary school. I know teachers who accompany such classes for years, Sch��activists and students, often without any formal training or German knowledge of a crisis-ridden area, with broken Nations and families.
There are many other examples that deserve a corresponding echo in the media. If I could wish for before the summer holidays for the new school year, it would be more public attention for positive stories.
