About the Author
A compelling critique which is highly deserving of a wide audience concerned with questions of state and national education. A book of international significance which raises serious concerns about the future of Turkish education, impeccably researched and engaging with an important agenda of topical issues, this book is an important and much-needed addition to the literature in this field.

Based on extensive interviews and a thorough analysis of key textbooks, this study casts valuable light on the experiences of both teachers and Kurdish language users within the Turkish education sector. It is a vital resource for anyone interested in the social dynamics of the region and issues of minority identity within the classroom more broadly.
