One Common Future, Two Education Systems: The Case of Syrian Children of Istanbul
Ozer, Y. Yesim; Komsuoglu, Aysegul; Atesok, Z. Ozde
European Education, v49 n2-3 p114-132 2017
The unexpected and vast Syrian refugee crisis with an ever-growing number of young Syrians appears to be one of the greatest challenges for the Turkish education system. While low enrollment rates are alarming, the dual system that emerged in the urban settings creates a main challenge to a comprehensive and supportive education system and unfortunately does not offer a good starting point for the future inclusion of Syrian refugees in society. This article's main argument is that a culture of togetherness and a common future can only be assured by a comprehensive education system that ensures equal opportunity, diversity, and plurality.
