Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

With the first, the Greens will be able to implement their leftist education reform

This will mean longer learning together before segregation to different types of school which I agree is a good thing. IIRC also this needs a change in the constitution with a 2/3 majority so it would not be possible with red-red-green.
And whether this is leftist? Again this in my view outdated one dimensional categorising.

Of course, for a party barely passing the 5% limit that goes against the popular will of electing off the incumbents,

Democracy is about majority and trying to achieve what you promised your voters before the election. I think the Saar greens must decide for themselves.

 the move is still a very risky one.

The alternative would also be a great risk. So I wish them well in exploring the Jamaica option in a state sandbox.
