Turkey has announced an overhaul of more than 170 topics in the country’s school curriculum, including removing all direct references to evolution from teenagers’ biology classes. Other contentious changes include teaching about jihad or holy struggle in religion classes, calling that the “love of homeland,” and a lessened emphasis on Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish republic who is revered by Turkey’s secularists. Ataturk instituted the separation of state and religion, but President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party has challenged that strict split with a more religious approach.
