High season for school renovation in Austria

Summertime – for children this season means holidays! But for their schools it is high season of renovation and reconstruction. This year, in Vienna 17 new school buildings are constructed and about 100 of schools are renovated now, in order to fulfil the municipalities’ obligation to provide German classes to migrants whereas 41 schools will not be able at all to meet this new requirement of the Austrian Federal Government. At large, 300  German classes have to be established in the city.
