Turkey Will No Longer Teach Evolution In High Schools

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

Turkish high schools will no longer teach the theory of evolution. According to the head of the national board of education, Alpasian Durmus, the subject has been removed from the curriculum due to a reform to eliminate "controversial" topics and emphasize national values. He said, "If our students don't have the background, the scientific knowledge, or information to comprehend the debate around controversial issues, we have left them out. The change will go into effect for the 2017- 2018 school year. He also said history classes will look beyond "Eurocentrism."
