Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children TURKEY COUNTRY STUDY March 2012

UNICEF and UIS started the Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children in 2010; it aims to accelerate the reduction in the number of out-of-school children and strengthen monitoring systems for these children. Currently 25 countries are part of the Initiative, which involves research and activities at the national, regional and global levels; the country report for Turkey has been prepared as part of these efforts. Today, the ratio of children who successfully complete basic education today is higher than it has ever been in the history of the country. Similarly, the ratio of children who benefit from pre-primary education has never been this high. Despite all our hard work, there are still some children in Turkey who do not start basic education or start it late or leave it early. With this report, our goal is to learn more about these children, understand the barriers that keep them from accessing the high quality basic education provided across the country, and help them overcome these barriers.
