In his sermons Gulen has reportedly stated: "Studying physics, mathematics, and chemistry is worshipping God." Gulen's followers have built over 1,000 schools around the world. In Turkey Gulen's schools are considered among the best: expensive modern facilities, equal gender treatment and English taught from the first grade. However, former teachers from outside the Gülen community have called into question the treatment of women and girls in Gülen schools, reporting that female teachers were excluded from administrative responsibilities, allowed little autonomy, and - along with girls from the sixth grade and up - segregated from male colleagues and pupils during break and lunch periods.
