This study investigates the situation and practices of adult education in Turkey in terms of (a) participants, (b) providers, and (c) program areas. The data were derived from published statistical data and one-to-one interaction with adult education providers when such data are unavailable. Turkey has a long tradition of adult education with established institutes and program areas. The Ministry of National Education (MoNE) is the main responsible body and 32 institutions provide adult education on a regular basis. The findings generally revealed young adults (ages 23-44) benefited most from adult education, more than half of participants are male, and the percentages of low-literate and literate individuals and 5-year elementary school graduates participating in adult education were less than the respective percentages in the whole population.
