November 27th 1918 - State takes on school supervision in Prussia


November 27th 1918: Prussia issues a decree by which the school chaplains are permanently removed as school supervisors and replaced by the state. The decision de facto meant a comprehensive secularization of the education system. It was accompanied by corresponding measures, such as the abolition of the school prayer and of mandatory religious education. The dismissal of school chaplains was met with vehement protests, particularly from the Catholic clergy, which saw it as a continuation of Bismarcks Kulturkampf (cultural struggle) of the 1870s. The Ministry of Education however argued that a religious tutelage of the students prevented their education in the spirit of the revolution. It later took back some of the enacted regulations.
