It's to stressful for me to listen and translate at the moment. Talking
about "Rothschild" in Germany is for understandable reasons a taboo.
However, I suspect that the IMF doesn't have direct impact. I don't like
conspiracy theories.

Some standards for sure aren't bad, we've got a law about "compulsory
school attendance for all children" OTOH many migrant children aren't
allowed to visit a school! So becoming criminal will the only job they
can do and than the government is allowed to deport them.

I don't know how free private schools are in Germany. I suspect that
many rich people let their children educate in private schools in e.g.
Switzerland. I never heard about children of politicians visiting public
schools and I had private discussions with some who have got highly
gifted, but dyslexic children, something I suffered myself when I
visited school.

We've got all kinds off "good" enactments, but they are on the paper
only, there are no competent teachers employed. We've got competent
teachers, but they are unwanted. It needs parents, psychologists etc. to
force strict observance of all those "good" enactments, but the weakest
children don't get this support.
