Isis Schools : Islamic State Announces Establishment Of English–Speaking Schools

The Twitter page “Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently” (twitter.com/Raqqa_SI ) is run by a group of local activists and expose crimes and atrocities committed there, both by the Syrian regime and by ISIS. On February 22, 2015, the page posted a photo of an ISIS notice in English that is addressed to “English-speaking muhajiroun” (immigrants to the Islamic State) and announces the establishment of two new schools for their children, one for boys and one for girls. The opening of such schools reflects the abundance of foreign fighters in ISIS's ranks.

The notice, signed by ISIS's education bureau, states that the Abu Mus'ab Zarqawi School for boys and the Aisha school for girls are intended for children aged 6-14, and that lessons are five days a week (Saturday-Wednesday) from 9:00 to 12:00, and are held in English, except for Koran and Arabic classes, which are taught in Arabic. The curriculum consists mainly of religious subjects: aqeedah (creed), Hadith, Seerah (the life of the Prophet), fiqh (jurisprudence) and Jihad, in addition to maths and English.
