Preschool Teachers Revolted! The announcement that pre-school education will continue despite the corona bans caused pre-school teachers to revolt. Tens of thousands of tweets were posted on Twitter with the hashtag #After School.
Eğitim-Bir-Sen called on the Ministry of National Education (MEB) to review its decision regarding face-to-face education in pre-school education institutions 5 days a week.
In the written statement made by the union, it was reminded that the Ministry made a statement that all formal, private, formal and non-formal education activities from 20 November to 4 January will continue through distance education within the scope of combating the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic. .

The main thing in education is face-to-face education, and despite the fact that transition to face-to-face education is the ultimate goal at all levels of education, this decision is incompatible with the grounds that face-to-face education is suspended in educational institutions. We call on the Ministry of National Education to review the decision to make face-to-face training 5 days a week in pre-school education institutions and / or to make a decision to start face-to-face training as soon as possible starting from 1, 8 and 12 grades and Support and Training Courses if it will not have a negative impact on the fight against the epidemic. .
