Education is part of a growing dispute in Turkey. The issue is between those who support religion in government and those who oppose it. Opponents are criticizing Turkey’s National Education Council for its proposal to require religious classes in schools. The two sides also dispute a council supported plan to begin what it calls “values education” for the youngest students. In addition, the main opposition group in Turkey, the Republican People’s Party, has objected to a proposal to teach the Ottoman language in schools. Turks no longer speak the language. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejects the criticism. He says people will learn and teach the language. The National Education Council advises Turkey’s Ministry of Education. The council called for required high school religious classes to be increased to two hours a week and be extended to all ages. Religious schools in Turkey are known as Imam Hatips. Each week, the schools provide 13 hours of religious training. Boys and girls are separated in the schools. The number of these schools increased sharply during Mr. Erdogan’s earlier leadership as prime minister. In 2004, 65,000 children attended them. Now that number is more than 1 million. The changes led to protests in Istanbul. Mr. Erdogan argues that religious education offers an answer to social problems children face, including illegal drugs and racism. Observers say education appears set to be the center of the increasingly angry debate over religion in government.
