Special Education Needs
The BVL, Bundesverband dyslexia and dyscalculia, criticised the excessive number of PC and early school leavers. Individual qualified support must become the standard in the schools. Will remain at approximately 250,000 pupils and students sit and about 80,000 reach no graduation. The economic cost of this situation are significantly higher than the costs, which would cause an individual educational support. Early promotion saves medium to high long-term costs and leads to a higher level of education in Germany. The shortage of teachers coming to a head more and more in schools, so that the regular instruction can be issued often no longer completely and remedial needs to be painted.
Held in secondary schools usually do not promote or support groups are much too large. The traffic lights for promotion at schools dark red, because we nationwide receive the feedback, that during the regular education or not offered can be. In addition there is to little support teachers who individually can go into learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dyscalculia, because they were not qualified for it. Only if parents can afford, informally competent promote their child, the child has a chance in our education system\”, Christine Sczygiel, National Chairman of the BVL is criticized. The BVL, Bundesverband dyslexia and dyscalculia, calls on education policy to tackle this through new approaches and to involve qualified learning therapists for the promotion in the schools. The BVL sees a great educational opportunity for the children involved, if the remedial classes at the schools issued by well qualified learning therapists. Since there is so far no recognized profession of therapist of learning, the BVL has developed a continuing education standard to qualify learning therapists. This should ensure schools professional, that students can fill their gaps, instead they repeat a class, without It is targeted to support. The cost of promoting individual must be financed by the countries to provide more equal opportunities.
