On July 13 of last year the Constitutional Court had announced a long-awaited decision that annulled a controversial law in a five-to-12 majority vote on the grounds that the law represented a violation of constitutional articles related to the right to education and freedom of labor. However, on Sept. 18, the Council of State annulled a circular sent to every governor’s office by the Ministry of Education that demanded all operating university preparation schools, known as “dershanes,” be closed and that the ministry would take legal action against those currently in operation.
