Fighting Terrorism With Education PDF Print Email this article

Problem:  In many undeveloped Muslim countries education is not widely available to all citizens.  Many of the boys and young men in these countries get their education in small religious schools called madrasas that teach a strict fundamentalist interpretation of Islamic law to their students.  Militant Islamic extremists use these schools as a vehicle for recruiting potential terrorists.

Solution:  The citizens in these countries have shown that they are open to new schools being built with funding and assistance provided by western nations.  These schools encourage women to participate and teach a well rounded curriculum free of fundamentalist teachings.  The resulting improvement in literacy and understanding of the outside world creates a more moderate point of view, and reduces poverty and overpopulation.
