Turkey’s new school year: Jihad in, evolution out

Turkey’s schools have begun the new academic year with a controversial curriculum that leaves out the theory of evolution and brings in the concept of jihad.

For Turkey’s Islamist-rooted government, the idea is for a new “education of values”.

Critics have denounced new textbooks as “sexist” and “anti-scientific”, and complain of a major blow to secular education.

“By embedding a jihadist education of values, they try to plague the brains of our little children, with the same understanding that transforms the Middle East into a bloodbath,” said Bulent Tezcan of the secular, opposition CHP party.
