Turkish Education: Innovation and Participation

Batuhan Aydagül, Coordinator and Board Member, Education Reform Initiative. Introduced by Patricia Blunt Koldyke.

Access to primary and secondary education in Turkey has dramatically increased over the last decade. Yet, only sixteen percent of fifteen year-olds in Turkey have test scores in reading, math, and science that are comparable to or above the OECD average, and Turkey’s education system ranks 32nd among 34 countries. Batuhan Aydagül, the sixth annual Patricia Blunt Koldyke Fellow, is leading the reform effort to ensure that Turkish students have access to quality and equitable education. Join The Chicago Council on Global Affairs to hear Aydagül share his challenges and successes advocating for innovative reforms for Turkey’s students.
