Success and Failure of Public Education

Education was an important tool for the socialization of the Turkish revolution. In the early years of the republic, public education and villagers- education became a more central part of this tool. The success or failure of these schools is still a hot topic in the public sphere. Unfortunately, analytical knowledge and opinion are negatively correlated as usual. This article evaluates the few works on the Nation Schools, the more developed literature on the People's Houses and the numerous yet scattered works on the Village Institutes along the axis of rural-urban, male-female tensions. It further evaluates the place of women in public education and the literature on public education. Although women are evaluated in terms of their relations to -important- men in many areas, the comparatively strong absence of women from this subject requires further attention. I suggest a co-evaluation of women from Girls' Institutes and Village Institutes to fight with this oblivion.
