Lower Saxony’s Minister of Education threatens critics of the corona measures in the vicinity of schools with the police

Grant Hendrik Tonne is driving a “zero tolerance strategy” – Minister refers to clear instructions for schools

Hanover. Lower Saxony’s Minister of Education, Grant Hendrik Tonne, has announced consistent action if critics of the corona measures in the vicinity of educational institutions create a mood. “I will not allow any slobs to try to instrumentalize children and young people in the school environment for their crude thoughts,” said the SPD politician in an interview with the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” (NOZ).

In an interview with the NOZ, the minister responsible for the approximately 3,000 schools in the state also made it clear that there is no leeway for schools here, but rather a clear instruction. “In the event of such observations, the school management must immediately involve the police,” Tonne clarified, adding: “I’m a big fan of political discourse, but this kind of lateral thinkers and right-wing agitators have no place anywhere – and certainly not in the environment schools. There’s not an inch of acceptance for that.”

According to the Ministry of Education, there have also been similar incidents in Lower Saxony in the recent past. “Yes, we have also received feedback from schools about graffiti and the fact that notes are distributed and students are addressed directly,” said Tonne. However, these are isolated cases.
