Mainz (dpa / lrs) - Lack of digital equipment and missing corona tests: The philologists' association in Rhineland-Palatinate has severely criticized the state government's handling of the corona crisis in relation to schools.

The policy was "in essential parts a tragedy," said the chairman of the regional association, Cornelia Schwartz, according to a message from Sunday.

The “proven wrong Corona school policy” has fatal consequences for the health of teachers, students and families.

Schwartz accused the Ministry of Education in Mainz of ignoring the association's warnings.
