The Corporate Social Responsibility and Sponsorship Illusion of the Commercial Companies in Public Elementary Schools of Turkey
Aksoy, Naciye
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v13 n1 p103-123 Jun 2015
The purpose of this study is to discuss the transformations, namely in the structure, meaning, conduct, and presentation of education, and the teaching profession and students as created by the companies via corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sponsorship projects in public schools of Turkey. The outlook of these transformations was discussed through a literature review, web pages search and by projects samples of corporate social responsibility and sponsorship of commercial companies. Since discussing and critically examining one by one all CSR projects conducted in almost each field of education, from pre-school to higher education levels, need a lengthy assessment, this study focuses on some selected examples from CSR projects on "nutrition," "hygiene," "traffic," and "healthcare" by multinational companies operating in the food, cosmetics, and automotive sectors. The examples here are limited to those devoted to the elementary schools, and the projects conducted at secondary education, higher education, and teacher education are excluded from the scope.
