Akinoglu, Orhan
Online Submission, World Applied Sciences Journal v3 n2 p195-199 2008
The aim of this study is to examine and evaluate the basic structure of changes in primary educational curricula in Turkey since the establishment of Republic. The study is mainly qualitative and is based on literature and document analyses and teaching curricular reviews. The research findings indicate that primary educational reforms in Turkey have been basically focused on enabling students to acquire and to have national consciousness throughout eighty years, but the 2004 primary curricula constitute a radical change due to the fact that they include educational norms, democratic consciousness, concepts, skills and values prolonged from the educational trends in the globalizing world, in general and the European Union, in particular.
