Turkish Immigrant Children Struggle to Learn German

A study has revealed that 1 out of every 5 children in the German state of Baden-Württemberg cannot speak German well enough to start school successfully. Generally, these children are from households where German is not spoken in the home. The problem is especially prevalent among families of Turkish immigrant background.

The solution proposed by the Socialist-Green government there is to throw more money at the immigrants. To raise this money, the government plans to increase taxes on business.

"The state must end the disadvantaging of immigrant children. This is in its own interests, too, if it wants to have more specialist workers of Turkish origin in future."
