…In the past days the district administration Donau-Ries, social services and the state school board were informed about the accusation of the use of violence against the students of the Twelve Tribes. The document which was received by the department of education is attached once again. We ask you the government of Schwaben to transmit your knowledge in this matter.
Verena Hueck, Government of Schwaben to Rudolf Rager, Government of Schwaben, subject: Complaint against Klosterzimmern February 10th, 2009 (767)
Did you get this document (from Volker Gath about the Twelve Tribes)? I can imagine that the descriptions are not totally groundless. From my my point of view (and also Mr. Dr. Hell) however now it is the matter of the social services and the prosecuting attorneys office. As long as we don’t know any more details, I don’t see any leverage right now, regarding the schooling law. Mr. Dr. Hell however informed the school board Donau-Ries, which will involve the school psychologist.

Print out from an e-mail by Mr. Volker Gath, excerpt: …a man named Robert Pleyer is the main one responsible for the entire public relations and with it in first place also therefore that the school department is being shined on for years, by making an impression towards the public that really doesn’t have anything to do with reality and reminds me of a lying agitation in the Third Reich.

Left to right: Herr Leopold, Landrat (county chief) Stefan Rößle, School Councilor Renate Heinrich, and Dr. Peter Hell. (My heimat photograph)
The result of the oral reports/presentations were generally in the area of average to above average. The high engagement of all the students was recognizable, the independence in the preparation, the independent use of the internet to acquire information.
Summary of the Results:
Similar tendencies could be seen in all the classes with all the written assignments and essays:
The main part of the work concerning the context was mostly on an average and also on a above average level.
Specially the atmospheric pictures of 5.and 6. grade partly showed a high, almost poetic expression ability. (for example: “Behind it courageous people climb the majestic, snow covered mountain ranges.”)
B. Examination of the performance the math subject on July 7th, 2009
…The assignments were taken from the textbooks authorized in Bavaria and or from exercise books in accordance with the age group.
The results were all at least in the average and in the older groups in the above average area. The very concentrated attitude in the work and the neat, orderly written presentation was noteworthy once again.
C. Examination of the performance in the local history and geography and physics, chemistry and biology on July 8th, 2009
Results:… A very active cooperation was noticeable. In comparison to the last examination there was noticeable progress as far as students independence (experiments, explanations and OHP transparencies, games…) and the independent application of media and visualization methods.
A noticeable improvement took place in the quality of training, according to my observations. As in the previous years, there was an open and trusting atmosphere as well as the unhindered readiness to cooperate in these performance examinations.
