This must be, as I said previously, one of the most demented and sick gun crazed ideas ever put into law.

Students over 21 who are "law abiding" and who have gone to the shooting range carrying guns into classroom at a major university.... only out and out gun crazed sick people could come up with this kind of sickness couched as a good law designed to protect "law abiding citizens."

At Oberländer’s school, there are no grades until students turn 15, no timetables and no lecture-style instructions. The pupils decide which subjects they want to study for each lesson and when they want to take an exam.

The school’s syllabus reads like any helicopter parent’s nightmare. Set subjects are limited to maths, German, English and social studies, supplemented by more abstract courses such as “responsibility” and “challenge”.

WHAT THE HELL? looks like this education system really works there in germany. if a pupil excels in math and a native language(english, french, or any other language) then that's it. the rest is just mere detail.

I've never had a kid, but if I were to have one, that's the kind of school I would want my kid to go to...
