Education researcher Ayan Ceyhan: Elective Kurdish course offers too little

Yonca Poyraz Doğan / Today's Zaman
There are positive and negative sides to having Kurdish as an elective course. First of all, Kurds are not a homogenous group of people. There are different groups of Kurdish children in Turkey. When we look at this heterogeneity in terms of language, we see that some of them know little Turkish or no Turkish at all when they start school. There are also those children whose Kurdish and Turkish are at almost the same level.
