In an announcement made today, the Adana Branch of Eğitim-Sen (Teachers’ Union) said it wasn’t sufficient to talk about the problems in education only on opening and closing days.. He pointed out the importance of keeping their struggle for their rights and against their abuse should be on the agenda in various ways throughout the year. This way, it would be possible to create a favorable public position and awareness on the issues. He also thanked People’s Houses, the Association of Pir Sultan Abdal and various political parties for their support in their campaign to collect signatures for free education.
