Lander in the duty

It has been discussed for a long time to take over a task with the digital pact that actually had to fulfill the landing alone, karliczek said. "But that was the idea that we say: (…) we see this as a national task to make flat-end digitization in the schools possible." she fugged: "however, in a foderal state, it also means that in the countries the questionlives must be launched and that the implementation happens in the countries."
