Workshop with Pea Doubek from MOBIT as part of the series "Bildung durch Demokratie" (Education through Democracy).

Taking a stand for democratic pillars such as equality, solidarity and the protection of minorities is a need for many people, but often brings with it challenges - also in the context of school education. Teachers, principals and other (educational) employees are confronted with numerous questions: How can a limit be set on the spread of anti-human attitudes and behaviors? Should a teacher engage in political discussions with students and how is this compatible with a supposed neutrality of the school? On the one hand, the workshop deals with the concept of neutrality and asks about its meaning for educational institutions. On the other hand, the following aspects will be dealt with on the basis of practical case studies: How political may or must schools be? How can a teacher react in challenging situations? And what possibilities of positioning educational institutions can be identified internally and externally?
