ISIS reopens Mosul schools — without music, art and history

Sep 16, 2014 by

ISIS extremists reopened schools in the captured city of Mosul — but banned music, art and history.

Most parents defiantly kept their kids at home rather than subject them to the terror group’s twisted teachings.

“They will brainwash them and contaminate their thoughts,” said Mosul resident Abu Hassan. “What’s important to us now is that the children continue receiving knowledge correctly, even if they lose a whole academic year and an official certification.”

He and his wife have opted for home schooling, picking up the required readings at a market.

The militants ordered that the school year in Iraq’s second largest city would begin last Tuesday. But most students have not shown up for class because of the new rules, which were announced in a two-page bulletin posted in mosques, markets and on utility poles.

The new curriculum — issued by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group’s shadowy leader — stressed that any reference to the republics of Iraq or Syria must be replaced with “Islamic State.”

The new guidelines declared teachers must also be segregated, with men teaching at boys’ schools and women teaching girls. Classes about history, literature and Christianity were “permanently annulled.”
