ISTANBUL — Minister of Education Nabi Avcı said the ministry's survey of 5,000 teachers and 5,000 students showed both teachers and students had more confidence in public schools.
By latest reforms in education and students' dependence on private prep schools for admission to universities had decreased.
Avcı said the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked Turkey among the countries with the highest attendance rates because most students used to skip school to attend prep schools.
The minister stated that through the TEOG, the ministry was able to analyze the accomplishments of students and teachers. "If students taught by a teacher are overwhelmingly successful on the exam, the teacher will be rewarded. If not, he or she will be deprived of promotion, for instance," he said.
Prep schools that offer students classes for university entrance exams will be shut down by Sept.1, 2015.
The government has provided incentives to prep schools for their conversion to private schools.
