A Vienna school director has warned that migrants are dragging down the school system and will likely create a “lost generation”, but authorities have tried to silence her.
Andrea Walach, the director of a Vienna school, said that migrant children are having an increasingly hard time learning German. She warned that because of their lack of language skills, young migrant children may be unemployable in the future and that the state would likely have to care for them their entire adult lives, according to TheLocal.at.
Describing the migrant students, she said that most of the children could only speak in fragments of sentences, could barely read, write or even count. She reckoned that at least a third of the children would end up on government assistance after their schooling.
