Ahmed Marcouch, mayor of the Amsterdam neighborhood of Slotervaart, says that public schools should offer more space to religion, particularly to Islam. According to Marcouch, the extra attention would take away religious education from the mosque.
Marcouch wants creation theory to be taught along with evolution. Muslim schools originate out of 'necessity' because public schools don't give religion enough space.
He also think that the schools should respect Muslim customs and holidays. He says that Muslim children can barely go to public schools because they must constantly justify issues such as headscarves, mixed showers and swimming, and holidays.
Marcouch says that the starting point should be that a Muslim kid can enter public school without renouncing his religion.
He says that there are legal possibilities for extra religious education, but that they're not utilized, or barely utilized. He says it's different than learning about religion, and should be done by a qualified teacher.
