“Under the leadership of our President, a huge investment has been made to make maximum use of this human capital from education. Comprehensive mobilizations were carried out in all our provinces and districts in every field from pre-school to secondary education, from secondary education to higher education. Together, we witnessed an investment that we had not witnessed in the history of the Republic, and we saw the results of this in a short time. We saw it in our schooling rates. In pre-school education, the rate of schooling at the age of 2000 was 5 percent in the 11s. Today it is 92 percent. Similarly, in secondary education, in higher education and in all fields, the children of this country have had all kinds of opportunities to access quality education where they are.”

“From now on, as the Ministry, we will make great efforts to raise our children, in cooperation with other ministries, not only to compete with their peers, but also as young people who are fully human, at peace with their state and nation, who have internalized the values of their geography, are happy to serve others, and have the potential to say something different to the world. This is the cornerstone of our current cooperation. We are trying to raise our children in a school climate where the morality of futuwwa arises. We do not have a single young person to sacrifice for any addiction, from substance abuse to internet addiction. We do not have a single young person to lose to terrorist organizations. We will fulfill our responsibilities in the construction of our future by cooperating, valuing our young people and having trouble with them, I hope by creating a much better school climate.”

Their attention, the process they will put forth, is that they have the ability to be intervened and managed within the time frame where the events are blocked before they happen, but when the event occurs immediately. Then, rehabilitating it with the units of our relevant ministry and taking steps to completely eliminate that event should be considered as the most important chain steps of 360 degrees. he said.
