Private courses won’t be closed now, says Arınç
İZMİR - Doğan News Agency
Private teaching centers can serve as schools under the new system, Deputy PM Arınç says during his İzmir visit. AA photoDeputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç has said the enactment of the new education reform bill is not tantamount to the immediate closure of private teaching centers, responding to reactions elicited by the prime minister’s recent comments on the issue.
“If the education system becomes adequate, and these exams can be prepared for more easily, then there may naturally come to be no role for these private teaching centers. We can think about revitalizing education so as to render [private teaching centers] unnecessary, rather than moving ahead by closing existing centers down,” Arınç said yesterday.
Private teaching centers could also serve as schools under the new system, using the means and tools already at their disposal, Arınç said, adding that the function of such private institutions will transform of its own accord once the new educational system is up and running.
