MINISTER TEKİN OPENS THE HACI ŞÜKRÜ BAKTIR ANATOLIAN IMAM HATIP SCIENCE AND SOCIAL SCIENCES PROJECT SCHOOL IN KAYSERİMinister of National Education Yusuf Tekin opened the Hacı Şükrü Baktır Anatolian Imam Hatip Science and Social Sciences Project School built by Melikgazi Municipality and philanthropists in Kayseri.
Minister Tekin thanked the deceased philanthropist and his family and emphasized that the contribution of the family is also important to achieve success in education. Stating that education begins in the family, Minister Tekin underlined that as parents, they have to be a part of the education system and do their part.
Pointing out that local governments are also stakeholders of the Ministry, Tekin explained that he attaches great importance to the perspective and contribution of local governments.
Explaining that they have talked about education investments and planning for almost a day in half of the provinces in Türkiye, Tekin reminded that some municipalities hinder the Ministry and aim to make profit from schools which are considered as a trade area.

"I am glad to see the good examples of project schools"
Noting that he was very happy to see the school defined as a project school, Minister Tekin underlined that he was the person who introduced the concept of project school to the education system in Türkiye. Noting that this concept is a designed model that aims to meet the local needs of schools in each province and to receive the contributions that teachers and administrators in the school can give to the system, Minister Tekin stated that he was very happy to come across good examples of project schools in the provinces he visited. Underlining that he was pleased to see the concept of project school has become widespread in Anatolia, Minister Tekin announced that they were planning to add different dimensions to the concept of project school in the new period.
