The State of the Turkish Educational System …

This street banner ad pretty much sums the state of the Turkish educational system. A private school company advertisement says:

Nature College Children University Kindergartens!

This is a country where a significant percentage of parents are uneducated or practically illiterate, and they think that if they send their kid to “this school”, paying several thousand dollars, their kid will be studying at College, University, and Kindergarten all at the same time! 🙂

Unfortunately this is not a laughable matter. 🙁

Unscrupulous businessmen make ton of money preying on kids and their dimwitted parents by setting up such phony schools where the teachers are paid near minimum wage salaries.

It is very depressing.
