Josef hofbauer an economics branch is to complete the educational landscape at the grammar schools in the district of forchheim. Ingrid kafferlein, head of the herder grammar school in forchheim, came up with the idea in the middle of last year. As a result, all of the district’s high school principals expressed interest in this educational option. The ministry of education and cultural affairs has now asked the district, as the responsible authority, to propose a site for the school. The members of the district cultural committee voted with only one dissenting vote in favor of the herder grammar school as a location.
Only 650 students left
Thus the district council chose the school with the smallest number of students. While around 900 students each attend the ehrenburg-gymnasium in forchheim and the gymnasium frankische schweiz in ebermannstadt, the herder gymnasium has only around 650 students. Here, according to principal ingrid kafferlein, the humanities branch only exists on paper. In recent years, for example, not a single student has chosen ancient greek as a subject. With 370 children, the majority of the schoolchildren had chosen the artistic branch. 250 children attended the language branch of this school. In ebermannstadt, 222 students in the eighth to tenth grades of the natural sciences branch of the school face 158 children of the same age from the social sciences branch.
