Muslims decry lack of Islam school teachers
SPAIN - A shortage of teachers of Islam to impart classes to the almost 120,000 Muslim children in Spain's schools is leading Islamic community leaders to question the government's commitment to freedom of religion.
In the current school year, there are just 41 Islamic teachers in Spain's schools, more than half of them in the North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, according to figures from the Union of Islamic Communities of Spain (UCIDE). That equates to one teacher for every 2,900 students.
