Spain: Muslim students lack access to Islamic education
Ninety percent of Muslim students enrolled in Spanish schools have no access to Islamic religion classes, according to a report published by the Union of Islamic communities (UCIDE) in Spain on Monday.
According to the UCIDE demographics study of the Muslim population in Spain, only in Andalusia, Aragon, Basque Country, Canary Islands and the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla offer basic Islamic education in elementary schools.
There are over 6,065 Muslim students in the Basque county, of which 5,032 are foreigners and the rest (1033) Spanish. However, there are two Islamic education teachers in total at the primary level, the report says.
