ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The schools in the ethnically Kurdish area of Syria known as Rojava will be opened next month with a new school program curriculum that was approved Friday by the region's governing Democratic Union Party(PYD).

The three cantons of Cizire, Kobani and Afrin said the schools will re-open on September 15.

The new teaching program in Cizire canton will be held in the Kurdish language in the first, second and third stages, but in the fourth stage will be in Arabic. The fifth stage will have an English module and the educational will then proceed in Arabic.

History and geography lessons will be in held in Kurdish.

Arab students living in Afrin will study three years in Arabic, then in Kurdish and English.

Political parties that are not involved in governing the cantons criticized the new curriculum for being written by the PYD.

"Political parties that are not involved in governing the cantons criticized the new curriculum for being written by the PYD." Why? They prefer if Turks, or Arabs written those curriculum for Kurds? No one stopped 'other political parties' from writing the curriculum, let's be absolutely clear about that, unless you prove otherwise.

As long as the pictures of Assad are not replaced by the pictures of Apo we should be OK.

This is wonderful news, a broad minded all inclusive curriculum, why anybody would want to criticize it? Well done PYD, keep up the good work!

Please PYD, make sure you guys surround each of those schools with 100 YPG and YPJ fighters fully armed because we know isis is very sneaky. I don't even wanna imagine the slaughter if these isis rats sneak into the school. A minimum of 100 YPG fighters per school camping out. Please, do it for the sake of the kids. Also, this is a amazing accomplishment. Keep it up!
