The Educational System of Turkey.
Institute of International Studies (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
An overview of the basic system of education in Turkey from preschool to the university level is included in this booklet. A brief discussion of educational history stresses the significance of the placing of schools under control of the Ministry of Education in 1924 in an effort to promote national integration, and the importance of the adoption of Latin script in 1928 as the written medium of the Turkish language. Emphasis is upon the educational system as a continuously reforming institution attempting to meet the educational needs and to play a more effective role in Turkey's development. Reform is directed toward making education more responsive to the demands of the country's changing economic and social scene. Educational structure, problems, school organization, administration, and financing are discussed for the various levels as well as teacher education. Tables are included on the structure of the educational system, universities, major higher education institutions, and teacher training institutions in Turkey. (SJM)
