Minister of National Education Yusuf Tekin addressed the teachers in the live broadcast of the Education Information Network (EBA) due to the start of the professional working period of the 2023-2024 school year.

Wishing the new academic year to be beneficial to parents, teachers, students and the whole country, Minister of National Education Yusuf Tekin presented Deputy Ministers Celile Eren Ökten, Ömer Faruk Yelkenci, Kemal Şamlıoğlu and Nazif Yılmaz who attended the live broadcast. The deputy ministers also took the floor and gave information to the teachers about their duties.
Expressing that they want to work together with the central and provincial organizations of the ministry Minister and with more than 1 million teachers in a team spirit that respects labor law and can work together, Tekin stated that they have been working together with the deputy ministers in many different positions within the ministry for many years.

New regulations will be published this week

Minister Tekin summarized the measures they took to solve the problems faced by teachers and to protect the reputation of teachers, and the practices they will implement regarding disciplinary practices.
Stating that they have taken the necessary measures to ensure that teachers have a say in issues such as grade repetition, reducing absenteeism and school dropouts, in order to protect their own rights in the classroom and at school, Minister Tekin stated that they will implement the appointment system, which is very uncomfortable for teachers and is implemented in many countries of the world. Stating that they would like parents to meet with teachers within the school within an appointment schedule from now on, Minister Tekin said that they have made regulations regarding the use of mobile phones in order to solve the problems they face in terms of disciplinary practices and privacy of private life that disturb teachers.
