No Room For Children12 Nov 2003
Two stories in the local paper illustrating how unimportant children are in Germany. Family Sentenced to Idleness. Court rejects family's application for full-day child care... as self-employed they do not meet the criterea, they can stay home and 'live from unemployment'. Too many teachers sick, kids, stay home! Elementary school closes because 5 of 15 teachers are sick, substitutes unavailable for 4 weeks.
