This research aimed to evaluate the opinions of Ministry of Education, teachers, parents, and unions regarding to the main problems of education in North Cyprus in order to contribute for the development of education system of the North Cyprus. It was also believed that this research could make a greater contribution to the comprehension of the educational and societal reality in North Cyprus. In this research, semi-structured interview was used as a notion of qualitative research method. Totally, 110 participants were interviewed that the senior managers of the union, both the managers and the employees of Ministry of Education, teachers, and the parents participated research. According to the findings of comparative case study, it was revealed that the education unions looked after their own benefits and privileges by deviating from their aim; they did not take the role which they had to take to educate the unions, they did not have any prospective research which concerned a certain plan and an attempt, and it was also determined that there was a great divergence between education unions and Ministry of Education. In this research, within the context of education unions, which they could make greater contributions to the improvement of society and education, what offered to the managers of education union was that they should arrange more education councils in order to allow North Cyprus to reach the education level of Europe and other developed countries. Besides, they should inform the parents and also education unions should take an active and a more efficient role in increasing both the numbers and qualifications of education conferences and the workshops within the framework of a certain plan and a program.
