Protocols for action to combat school attendance problems in Turkey

Report Turkey protocols for action

In Turkey, there are various interventions related to school absenteeism at both the state and ministry level, as well as at the local level. Within this context, protocols for action are addressed in two ways: central authority and local authority. Turkey does not have a concept of autonomous governance. As a result, the practices of the central ministry are implemented in the same way in all 81 provinces. However, provincial governors at the local level may resort to certain practices that differ from the ministry’s guidelines, although they should not deviate significantly from them. Within this framework, each protocol for action obtained is initially categorized into two groups: central and local. Then, they are analyzed based on their fundamental characteristics.
