Isa Dag


Human beings are social in nature and need acquisition and possession of knowledge for self-actualisation. This need can only be fulfilled in educational institutions. Turkish educational system is composed of pre-school, elementary, secondary and higher education. It is now evident that governments alone cannot meet the high demand of information and knowledge in the 21st century. Public schools and private schools are required to step in interchangeably when one falls short or fails.

This study offers a short evaluation of the status of private schools in Turkey, a comparison of public and private schools, recommendations on public-private school balance and history of private schools, their structure and function and demands of parents. The study elaborates on governing factors in choosing a private school and how public schools can adapt to demands.
