The uproar surrounding the case of the student who had to write a competence test at minus 1 degrees Celsius outdoors in Voitsberg, Styria last Thursday – despite the mask exemption certificate from the doctor who reported to eXXpress – is not getting any quieter. On the contrary: since it became known, the scandal has been making waves and not only concerns countless students, parents and teachers in the country, but also politicians – and soon the judiciary as well. Not only that: Shortly after the story of the affected student and the accompanying photo spread like wildfire in the media and on the Internet, the shocking realization follows that this is by no means an isolated case.
A father from Neunkirchen (Lower Austria) has now spoken up on social media, whose son (13) has had a very similar experience: The four-year-old boy was also “expelled” from the classroom because he didn’t have a mask and had to take a test at clinking cold temperatures write: “To my son too… [ist es] so happened. And such people scold themselves as educators,” said the angry report of the father of the affected student from Neunkirchen, who also shared a photo on Facebook.
