A Gender Review in Education, Turkey 2003

02.06.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This study examines the state of education in Turkey and its links with the country' s development, from a historical and gender perspective. Following the proclamation of theTurkish Republic, primary education was declared compulsory and this status was subsequently secured by Article 42 of the 1982 Constitution. However, statistics reflect that women' s school enrolment rates are relatively low. Based on data by United Nations agencies such as the United Nations Children' s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the document offers an interpretation of gender differences in terms of literacy and schooling in Turkey.
