Assessment of and Problems with the Support Campaign for National Education in Turkey
Dogan, Elife
International Journal of Educational Reform, v16 n2 p186-189 Spr 2007
On September 8, 2001, Semra Sexer--wife of Turkish Republic president Ahmet Sezer and a retired teacher--started the Support Campaign for National Education (2003, 2004, 2005). This campaign aimed at finding problems in national education and offering solutions. Assessment meetings about the campaign were held on May 5-6, 2003, in Istanbul; October 9-13, 2004, in Izmir; and November 16-18, 2005, in Antalya. In this study, the problems were analyzed that were discussed in the three assemblies held to give support to national education. During this analysis, the economic, social, cultural, and educational problems were given attention. This article suggests that Turkey will only solve its problems if all parts of it will cooperate. A development policy, the same as Japanese's quality policy in 1950s, should be accepted.
