Homework in Germany: Turkish students targeted

The homework titled “Murat and Ayşe”, which was inspired by the fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel” at Krupp High School in Duisburg, Germany, and included expressions that offended Turks, drew criticism. In the aforementioned assignment, there is a text about Murat and Ayşe’s story set in the forest, searching for doner kebab in the forest. At the end of the text, students are asked to answer 4 questions. Fatih Zingal, a lawyer in Germany, said in a statement to AA correspondent that he criticized the assignment that served prejudices and stereotypes of a teacher. He said he wondered why he felt the need to give his students such an assignment.

Reminding that homeworks that marginalize Turks and foreigners or include racist expressions were given in schools before, Zingal requested North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) Education Minister Yvonne Gebauer to make a statement on this issue. Lawyer Zingal, “It is essential to review all course materials that contain racism and discrimination. Because this is not the first incident, “There will be no last incident. said. In the statement made by the Turkish Consulate General in Dusseldorf, it was stated that the incident in question was investigated by the Education Attaché and that the issue would be followed.
