Berlin high school builds fence to keep prostitutes out

A school in Berlin is making sure students don’t get a crash course in sex education.

The Französisches Gymnasium high school has built a 6-foot fence to keep prostitutes out of the facility, according to German media reports.

Prostitution has been legal in the country for 15 years, with some sex workers operating on the streets to avoid expensive room rates, according to USA Today.

“There were always complaints about unscrupulous characters including prostitutes walking shamelessly and illegally into school grounds even during the day,” district school inspector Carsten Spallek told Berliner Zeitung earlier this week.

“The prostitutes eat, stand, drink and litter. It looks filthy in the late evening,” district coordinator Michael Klinnert told the same publication.

Local officials spent approximately $ 67,000 to build the fence, which is 400 feet long, according to reports.

Klinnert told Berliner Zeitung that women are driven to the area every day, sometimes right in front of the school.

“The women have no stations to wash themselves or to get themselves ready,” he told the publication. “And they relieve themselves wherever they please.”

German lawmakers have tried to regulate prostitution, making sex workers register and undergo medical examinations.
