Turkish Ministry of Education decided to remove Kurdish language from Ministry of Education’s curriculum.
Turkish media in north of Kurdistan has reported the ministry’s decision.
Kurdish language has been an elective subject in Turkey schools for four years the students were free whether to attend the lessons of this subject or dismiss it.
The ministry says the reason behind this decision is the lack of Kurdish teachers.
In 2016, 77 thousand and 931 students registered their names to take Kurdish language lesson but only 59 Kurdish language teachers were hired by the Turkish government.
