Minister of Education and Culture, Ozdemir Berova, has said that “some changes which were made in the curriculum in Turkey during the school year 2017-2018 will be reflected in some sections of TRNC education”.

Replying to accusations from some quarters that his ministry is undermining the secular nature of education in the TRNC, Berova said: “The curriculum of the Turkish Cypriot community since 1971 complies with Turkey’s”. He added further that no changes were made to the “TRNC’s curriculum even after the British colonial period”. He concluded by saying that the “goal is to enable our youth to grow up and live with national and moral values”.
