This book sheds light on the neoliberal and neoconservative transformation of the educational system in Turkey in the age of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), whose government has carried out several reforms to change the educational philosophy of Turkey since 2002. Based on in-depth analysis of the reforms, this collection of essays shows that the Party aims to build a powerful neoliberal and neoconservative agenda in Turkey. These reforms include making students and their parents pay in every stage of education, increasing the number of the exams for enrollment to any school, putting individualization at the center of education, and increasing the number of Quran courses. This collection argues that these educational reforms of the AKP era have led to a collapse of public education in Turkey.
