New Publication on ISIS’s Primary Science Education Curriculum

Project SOMEONE is proud to announce the publication of “Science Education under a Totalitarian Theocracy: Analyzing the ISIS Primary Curriculum” in Journal of Research in Science, Mathematics and Technology Education.

Co-authored by Patrice Potvin, Marianne Bissonnette, Chirine Chamsine, Marie-Hélène Bruyère, Mohammed Amine Mahhou, Olivier Arvisais, Patrick Charland and Stéphane Cyr of Université du Québec à Montréal, and Project SOMEONE Director Vivek Venkatesh of Concordia University, the article offers an analysis of the primary science curriculum in conjunction with the integration of religious content. The authors conclude that the curriculum reflects an absolutist/theocratic ideological program and recommend changes for the secularization of science teaching in a post ISIS context.
