Germany faces Islam teacher shortage

    German education ministers have announced plans to expand classes on Islam to include all students, but the plan faces a shortage of teachers. Officials seeking to open the Islam classes to non-Muslim students face hurdles in finding qualified instructors — only 2.8 percent of Muslims in German high schools eventually graduate, Der Spiegel reported Friday. Only about 120 Islam teachers are currently working in Germany — one-eighth of the estimated number needed.
