✏Sufism and Sufi Orders in Compulsory Religious Education in Turkey Book Summary : ABSTRACT: The governments of the Turkish Republic have claimed the authority to decide what kind of Islam is or is not desirable for Turkish citizens. This article explores how the governments after the 1980 coup infiltrated the negative image of Sufi orders into compulsory religious education and how the Justice and Development Party regime has been trying to modify it. To do so, it investigates the descriptions of Sufi orders as well as Sufism in the textbooks studied as part of the mandatory Religious Culture and Morals course from the beginning of 1982 to present.
✏Teaching Worldviews Through Creative Drama for Religious Education in Turkey Book Summary : Abstract: Over the last two decades, Worldview Approach has been mentioned in the field of religious education and spirituality. This article aims to determine the effects of creative drama on teaching worldviews and religions. The main purpose of Worldview Education is to assist individuals to have a broader and deeper understanding on self-identity, worldviews of others, and on the meaning and purpose of life. It also helps individuals to think on ontological, epistemological and ultimate questions about life, values and beliefs. The spiritual development of individuals has a need for several guidelines from the fields of philosophy, theology, and education.

📒Religious Education And The Challenge Of Pluralism ✍ Adam B. Seligman
✏Religious Education and the Challenge of Pluralism Book Summary : The essays in this volume offer a groundbreaking comparative analysis of religious education, and state policies towards religious education in seven different countries and in the European Union as a whole. They pose a crucial question: can religious education contribute to a shared public sphere and foster solidarity across different ethnic and religious communities? In many traditional societies and even in what are largely secular European societies, our place in creation, the meaning of good and evil, and the definition of the good life, virtue, and moral action, are all primarily addressed in religious terms. It is in fact hard to come to grips with these issues without recourse to religious language, traditions, and frames of reference. Yet, religious languages and identities divide as much as unite, and provide a site of contestation and strife as much as a sense of peace and belonging Not surprisingly, different countries approach religious education in dramatically different ways. Religious Education and the Challenge of Pluralism addresses a pervasive problem: how can religious education provide a framework of meaning, replete with its language of inclusion and community, without at the same time drawing borders and so excluding certain individuals and communities from its terms of collective membership and belonging? The authors offer in-depth analysis of such pluralistic countries as Bulgaria, Israel, Malaysia, and Turkey, as well as Cyprus - a country split along lines of ethno-religious difference. They also examine the connection between religious education and the terms of citizenship in the EU, France, and the USA, illuminating the challenges of educating our citizenry in an age of religious resurgence and global politics.
📒There Is A Crack In Everything Education And Religion In A Secular Age ✍ K. H. (Ina) ter Avest
✏There is a Crack in Everything Education and Religion in a Secular Age Book Summary : There are two constants in academic and theological discourse throughout history, they are the debate around secularization and the dialogue concerning the intersection of religion and education. Each age has had its debate about modernizing forces that drive concerns of impending secularization. In this publication this theme is approached from perspectives of teachers, of students, of policy makers and situated in a politico-historical context. Aware of the fact that in today’s plural societies one sacred canopy is non-existent anymore, cracks of the sacred canopy/canopies are described, as well as ‘the light that gets in’, the possible and challenging ways out are roughly sketched.

📒Neoliberal Transformation Of Education In Turkey ✍ Kemal İnal
✏Neoliberal Transformation of Education in Turkey Book Summary : 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.

📒Freedom Of Religion And Belief In Turkey ✍ Özgür Heval Ҫınar
✏Freedom of Religion and Belief in Turkey Book Summary : The protection of the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion is one of the most basic tenets of a democratic society. This right is not only crucial for those who believe, but is also so for atheists, agnostics and sceptics who have no religious beliefs. It is also considered a cornerstone of a democratic society and is closely linked to pluralism, tolerance and open-mindedness. Turkey has been involved in an accession process in order to become a full member of the European Union (EU) since 2005. The Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi – AKP), which first formed a government after its election victory of 2002, pledged to introduce reforms and lift prohibitions. Hence, although the AKP has made significant progress towards meeting the political norms required for EU membership in its twelve years in power, there are many outstanding restrictions regarding the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion which remain in place. This book provides an overview of recent developments pertaining to the protection of the right to freedom of religion and belief in Turkey, a country that in its constitution is defined as a democratic and secular state. As it is not feasible to examine all questions in one book, this study will confine itself to the most topical and urgent issues.
