Dear Teacher's Friends, Victim of Decree Law,

On the occasion of October 5th, World Teachers' Day, we will have a series of activities to announce the grievances of M. E. B. teachers. We expect each of our fellow teachers to participate and support these activities.

Additional offer, we welcome your advice.

33,716 teachers (corresponding to 27% of the total dismissals) working in the Ministry of National Education were dismissed through decrees. These teachers are not employed even in private schools, private teaching institutions and institutions due to the special regulations in the Statutory Decrees and the Ministry of National Education circular, unfortunately.


The activities we will do,

*** On the evening of October 5, there will be a label study in Turkish and English on social media.

*** With the initiation of Mr. Gergerlioğlu, a large-scale petition will be launched.

*** Putting viral videos where teachers explain their grievances ...
