German model teachers in Switzerland

On the subject of German teachers in Switzerland the newspaper writes: "These days almost nothing works in Switzerland without German staff. ... And Switzerland's elementary schools can hardly get by without help from their northern neighbour. Countless teachers from Germany are already teaching here, and that number is steadily increasing each year. Some of them commute to work every day from the other side of the Rhine, but most of them settle down south of the river. ... The rising number of foreign teachers in Swiss classrooms ... has gone largely unnoticed by the general public so far: these teachers from neighbouring countries seldom cause problems. ... On the contrary, German teachers often get top marks from their superiors. They save Swiss elementary schools a lot of trouble - for example in those areas which have a notorious shortage of teachers. Without these well-trained immigrants, the school authorities ... would have to let their protégées be taught by unqualified locals."
