Education is a fundamental right and social responsibility.

Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

"1. Every person has the right to education. At least, education is free at first and basic phases. Primary education is compulsory. Everyone should be able to benefit from technical and vocational education. Higher education should be open to all people according to their merit.

2. Teaching should aim at the full development of human personality and strengthening respect for human rights and freedoms. Education should promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, races and religious groups, and improve the United Nations' efforts to maintain peace.

 3. Parents have the right to choose the kind of education that will be given to their children. "

Due to the importance of education in peace and development, the United Nations General Assembly determined January 24 as "International Training Day".

The # training day, the first of which will be celebrated this year, was announced to the world on social media.

According to the announcement of UNESCO, today 262 million children in the world do not go to school, 617 million children and adults are illiterate, 4 million refugees lack the right to school.

According to a report by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Bonn, Germany, 263 million children worldwide are out of school. The number of children out of school corresponds to a quarter of the European population.

The report revealed that 61 million girls and boys aged 6 to 11 years of age, 60 million girls and boys aged 12 to 14 years of middle school age, and 142 million children aged 15 to 17 years of high school age, did not go to school.

35 percent of boys and girls who do not go to school at the age of primary school live in crisis regions worldwide. 25 percent of middle school age children who cannot go to school and 18 percent of high school age children who live in high school age live in countries where conflicts continue.

The report points out that older teens have less chance of education. Young people between the ages of 15 and 17 are five times more likely to go to school than children between the ages of 6 and 11.

The reason for this is the compulsory education in primary school age in the countries. The report also stated that children aged 15 to 17 often had to work.

The report also states that education varies according to girls and boys. It was stated that the number of girls who never went to school in the south of Africa reached 9 million, while the number of boys was 6 million.

UNESCO noted that approximately 5 million girls and 2 million boys have never been to school in Southeast Asia.

“Today is the time to reaffirm basic principles. First, education is a human right, a public interest and a public responsibility. Second, education is the strongest power we have to provide the potential and development we need to achieve significant health improvements, promote economic growth, and build more flexible and sustainable societies.

All governments and institutions around the world related to matters referred to above 'for education' programs in developing plans, especially recently in Turkey and vice versa jobs done ..

Especially after the July 15 coup attempt, which is a blessing for someone, the country has witnessed practices that can be practiced by an enemy mentality to education, peace and brotherhood.

The face of the country has been locked on the door of a past educational institution full of international successes, and the target of practices whose personnel will be exposed to a social death.

The teachers, who have never had any judicial investigations in their lives, were declared terrorists overnight with abstract discourses such as liaison and connection, which had no equivalent in law.

Universities were closed, highly valued academics were either imprisoned or forced to leave the country

All these practices shook the education system, which is already inadequate and of low quality, in the country.

In Turkey, 4 million 330 thousand 504 children are still going to school .. to create 2 million 486 thousand 554 of the girls who go to school.

The number of students per class is 35 in primary education and 34 in secondary education. It is certain that this number is much higher in big cities and in Eastern and Southeastern Anatolia regions.

In Diyarbakır with a total of 20,000 teachers, 4314 teachers and 900 teachers in Tunceli, 504 teachers were exposed

As a result of recent unlawful practices, at least 1 million 511 thousand 200 students remained without teachers.

It was turned into a backyard of politics in schools and turned into a material of politics. The most important proof of this is the effective demonstration of the events experienced by the July 15 coup attempt, which no one would approve of, in a way to create trauma in the psychology and development of children.

All this means mortgaging the future of the country.

This crippled idea, which thinks to develop the country only by construction, damages difficult to repair for the future generations and the future of the nation.

We invite everyone who knows the importance of education, patriotic and sensitive by counting January 24, World Education Day as an occasion, to stop this trend and take initiative.
