Statements by the President regarding face-to-face education and student dormitories:
“Over 11 million 436 thousand students continue their education and training activities. After a gap of about one and a half years, of course, there have been minor setbacks. But these have also been quickly fixed by our relevant institutions. In order to carry out face-to-face education in schools in a healthy way, we have to prepare for this period. We delivered an appropriation of 722 million to their place. In order to avoid any disruption in cleaning, we increased the current 71 thousand cleaning personnel to 113 thousand with 42 thousand additions. The fact that almost all of our students attend classes shows that our children miss school. While the vaccination rate of our teachers is increasing, we invite our parents and students who are in line to be vaccinated for the continuation of face-to-face education without interruption.
As of today, we have started education activities in accordance with the academic calendar announced by many of our universities. Hopefully, next week, we will hold a joint academic year opening ceremony at our kulliye house covering all of our universities. Of course, with the opening of universities, there was an intense demand for the accommodation needs of our students due to the experience of 2 years. First of all, I would like to bring the following fact to the attention of my nation: Turkey is the country with the largest number of public and higher education student dormitories and beds in the world. Recently, some parks and gardens here are lying on the bands, I say this clearly; Some of them have nothing to do with being a student. We increased the number of dormitories from 190 to 774 in our country, and the bed capacity of 182 thousand to 719 thousand.”
