Thousands of Prisoner Students

There are nearly three thousand students are inmate in Turkey. One thousand of them are university students and the rest of them are high school, secondary school and primary school students. Would you like to know why they are in prisons?

Secondly, they have some desires from the governments such as equal, free of charge, scientific and in mother tongue education.
