Education and Changing Social Realities in Turkey.
The educational system of Turkey is discussed from a historical perspective. There are two main components to the educational system: formal education, which consists of preschool, primary, secondary, and higher education; and non-formal education, which provides educational opportunities for adults. Turkey has undergone a number of social changes in the 20th century including the transformation of the state from an empire into a republic; the population has risen dramatically; there has been intensive migration from rural areas to urban areas; and the social status and role of women have changed. These changes have influenced and been influenced by the educational system, and have resulted in increasing the educational needs of Turkish society. Eight priorities of the educational system, based on existing problems, are outlined. (DB)
