The Minister of Education has annulled the order issued by the Ministry a few days ago under which the minority schools in Turkey were notified that they would not be allowed to close except on Friday, the Turkish day of rest, so that Jewish schools would have been compelled to keep open on Saturdays and Christian schools on Sundays. The Minister of Education explains that the order had been issued by certain officials in the Ministry without his knowledge.
