German School to Open in Kurdistan

A German-language school in the Kurdistan Region’s capital of Erbil will be inaugurated on Sept. 16, and will start admitting students for the 2010-11 academic year, according to a report from AKnews.

“It is going to be the first private school in Kurdistan that is supported by the German government and it will become a bridge connecting Kurdish and German cultures,” the website of the Kurdish government quoted Stefan Bantle, the newly-appointed German Consul General in Kurdistan.

Bantle, who met with Kurdistan’s Minister of Education on Tuesday, said the school will follow German standards, but will take into consideration the educational curriculum in Kurdistan as well.

Bantle stated that the school will be also useful for the children of Kurdish families who return to Kurdistan from Germany.
