Price, E. Frank
Educational assistance to Turkey (1959-1970) from the United States Agency for International Development (AID) is summarized in this document. In 1959 Turkey's National Educational Commission developed educational policies to which AID responded. AID projects expanded from the General Education Services Project (1957) into individual projects. Their purposes and activities are described in the document under nine objectives: (1) to study Turkey's educational plants and to expand its physical facilities for education, (2) to help overcome illiteracy, (3) to increase the amount and type of instructional materials, (4) to introduce teachers to alternative instructional methods, (5) to expand vocational-technical education and increase efficiency in teaching technical skills, (6) to expand knowledge and skill in English language and increase efficiency in English language teaching, (7) to increase the quantity and quality of business and public administrators, (8) to expand research and planning in the Ministry of Education, and (9) to encourage universities to modernize their programs in teaching and research.
