Education in Turkey is about more than teaching skills [Graphic evidence]

Instead of writing in our recent paper that education was always about more than just teaching and learning, we should have just attached this picture, from yesterday’s parliamentary debate on the new education reform in Turkey.

Note to reader: It should be noted that not all sessions on education policy include ‘choking’. Sometimes they occur in a professional fashion where no MPs are hurt in the policy’s making. The welfare of certain students affected by such past policies, however, is another matter, but this doesn’t always make the frontpages of mainstream newspapers in Turkey.
