Kurz rejects plan for Turkish Islamic school
Foreign and Integration Minister Sebastian Kurz has spoken out against plans to found a Turkish Islamic high school in Vienna-Simmering. He said the idea "is completely the wrong approach".
According to a report in the Salzburger Nachrichten paper the Islamic Federation has already started to build a private Turkish-language school for imams in Austria - which would effectively be run by the Turkish state, with all lessons taught in Turkish, and German offered as a foreign language option.
There are also plans to build similar schools in Strasbourg, France and in New Jersey, USA.
