Saxony’s state student council has criticized the closure of more than 30 schools because of the 100th German Catholic Day in Leipzig. Because classrooms were being used for overnight stays, thousands of students were now without classrooms, representatives of the state student council said Wednesday in Leipzig. While some final exams were still pending, "a religious event" was apparently "more important than the future of Leipzig’s students."
