The Origins of Revolutionary Critical Education in Turkey
Inal, Kemal
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v13 n3 p29-49 Dec 2015
This article examines the origins of Revolutionary Critical Education in Turkey from the late Ottoman Period to the present, focusing mostly on post-2000 developments in society at large-scale and in education in particular. The chapter argues that Revolutionary Critical Education is a product of the post-1960 military intervention period where socialist movements gained an impetus towards massification in terms of youth radicalism as well as through some educational bodies such as trade unions. I conclude by arguing that following the emergence of some mass-based people's movements in recent years all over the world, we are faced with a radical situation that allows us to theorise a new understanding of education which should be formulated as Revolutionary Critical Education. A bibliography is included.
