Fun at a Berlin School..
You might have missed this report in last week's National Post about a Berlin school in an immigrant neighbourhood.
Police were sent to a high school in an immigrant neighbourhood of Berlin yesterday after teachers said they were living in fear of the students.
The teachers at Reutli high school in Neukoelln made a desperate plea for help to the police four weeks ago, complaining students were "disrespectful and aggressive" and violence had become a daily occurence.
Senior politicians blamed the crisis on the failure of immigrant students to integrate.
"We are helpless," the teachers said in a letter, adding they no longer dared to teach without their cellphones close by so they could call for help.
Pictures of hooded students pelting journalists with heavy cobblestones and police officers lining the entrance of the school in the heavily Turkish and Arab district of Berlin have filled prime-time news since Thursday.
Yesterday morning, the N24 news channel showed students hurling garbage cans out of window at the school.
"Things have been getting worse and worse because people seem to be crazy here. They are bringing knives and weapons to school," said one teen, who did not give his name.
