    This is the wish of Recep Tayyip Erdogan , President of Turkey. According to information from Le Point, a Turkish delegation will visit France at the end of May to observe the functioning of international high schools, the institutions that welcome foreign students but also some French ones.

    Officials of Turkish French high schools say they have already received “moderately courteous” visits from Turkish officials. The latter allegedly “challenged the legal basis for the education of Turkish children in these institutions” because they also host Turkish students, including the children of some members of the AKP, the presidential party.

    According to Le Point, at the end of their visit, the delegation will demand the creation of Turkish high schools in France. According to a source quoted by the weekly, “French people are put under pressure in Istanbul and Ankara by the power of Erdogan, which seeks to establish Turkish schools in France, and the Quai d’Orsay does nothing”.

    The Turkish president will have to deal with the Ministry of National Education and Foreign Affairs. As French daily Le Figaro recalled, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in 2012 to “train a pious generation” after launching three optional religious courses in college, but they have since become mandatory in some institutions.

    As stated in the daily, the new programme launched in 2017 introduces the teaching of the concept of “jihad”, with the Ministry of Education declaring that “jihad exists in our religion and it is the duty of the Ministry of Education”.

    Education will be designed to ensure that this concept is taught in a “fair and appropriate manner”. Erdogan pointed out then that he was not referring to “holy war” but to the “good jihad” that teaches of “love of the fatherland”.
