It is a desperate plea for help. Sixty-eight head teachers have written a letter to the authorities in the German capital complaining about the terrible state of their schools.
The teachers say they are facing worrying levels of violence, poor behaviour and disruption at schools in Berlin, and they claim that some schools are turning into ghettos for children with immigrant backgrounds.
In their letter, the teachers also criticise the authorities for failing to renovate old, dilapidated school buildings.
There has been a huge public outcry because the teachers who complained all work at schools in the heart of Berlin, in the district of Mitte, which is home to the German parliament.
