Qualitative Info

Concerning racist violence, some Federal States (e.g. Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt) provide official statistics on extremist right-wing crimes in and around schools. These data are based on police statistics on politically motivated right-wing crimes. In 2003, Berlin implemented a special reporting scheme on violent incidents at schools. The statistics by the Berlin reporting system record a relatively low number of ‘extremist’ incidents in the term 2008/2009. A general trend cannot be identified [2, p.18].
On regional and local level, anti-discrimination offices record complaints of discrimination in the field of education. For instance, the Munich based anti-discrimination agency AMIGRA reported that 13.8 per cent of 238 persons who approached AMIGRA for different reasons between 2007 and 2009 felt discriminated in the area of education  [1, p. 22).
