ERI recently published Catch-up Education Program’s (CEP) Mid-Term Review Report with the technical and financial support of UNICEF. Please click here to download the English version.
The CEP aims to secure the right to education of children, aged 10–14 years old and who never had access to education, dropped out from school or are at least 3 years behind their peers. The program started by the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) in 2008–2009.
The report includes information about parents’ and students’ problems regarding the program, CEP’s tasks and responsibilities, implementers’ views about program’s future and a cost-benefit analysis of CEP. For this research, ERI organized a team with Dr. Bengü Börkan, Dr. Ayşe Caner, Yard. Doç. Dr. Hande Sart, Yard. Doç. Dr. Özlem Ünlühisarcıklı from Faculty of Education of Boğaziçi Unıversity and Aytuğ Şaşmaz from ERI and started to acquire data. Registered datas in e-CEP, documents provided by MoNE and UNICEF were examined. Governors, district governor, principals, teachers, parents and students were interviewed in 10 different cities. 500 children and 300 teachers completed the survey.
