Before the renewed Corona consultations by Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the Prime Minister, JU boss Tilman Kuban spoke out against school closings.

“It is right to fight to keep the schools open,” said the chairman of the CDU and CSU youth organization to the partner newspapers of the Neue Berliner Redaktionsgesellschaft (Monday edition). "We have to pay very close attention to the fact that children from less well-off families also have a chance and they often suffer most from closings," continues Kuban.

At the same time, he called for further digitization of the lessons. Kuban also called for more appreciation for the renunciation and restrictions of youth to fight the pandemic and protect the elderly. “The vast majority of the young generation behave very sensibly. I hope that this contribution will be appreciated by the older generation. "

Kuban added: “And if we are going to discuss, for example, intergenerational equity in the pension system or in care, everyone should remember what the young are doing and accepting right now.” By doing without, the younger would contribute a lot to social cohesion. "I would like the older people to recognize that and not take it for granted."
