The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) Al-Jazira and Euphrates Committee presented a report on the situation of education in the areas controlled by the PYD militia terrorist, stressing that these militias are trying to impose their ideology on the people of the region and sow discord among the social components in the region.
The Committee’s coordinator, Abdelbaset Abdullatif, pointed out that with the beginning of the current academic year, the PYD terrorist militia closed all private schools and institutes, except for those affiliated with the church. The PYD militia also forced the local population to enroll in schools that are run by this militia and which teach their own educational curricula that no one recognizes.
Abdullatif went on to say that the schools run by the PYD militia lack qualified teachers as the current teachers were hastily graduated from private institutes. He added that the curricula being taught in these schools focus on promoting the ideology of the PKK terrorist organization while deprioritizing foreign languages.
He pointed out that locals and civil society organizations held a sit-in protest outside the United Nations office in the town of Qamishli in late September. The PYD militia responded with violence and prevented journalists from covering the sit-in and arrested a number of participants, he added.
