John Dewey's Report of 1924 and His Recommendations on the Turkish Educational System Revisited.
Turan, Selahattin
This study evaluates the significance of John Dewey's 1924 visit to Turkey and the subsequent reports and recommendations Dewey prepared regarding the Turkish educational system. The study analyzes the 30 pages of reports from 1924 from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Dewey's first report addressed better teacher training and the funding of education. The second report made specific recommendations for the formation and execution of an educational plan, the development of schools as community centers, the reorganization of the Ministry of Public Instruction, the training and treatment of teachers, the redefinition of the school system, the improvement of health and hygiene issues in schools, and the improvement of discipline. The paper also includes John Dewey's essays on the Turkish state where Dewey addressed larger Turkish problems. The essays first appeared in "New Republic" and have been reprinted over the years.
