Erdogan’s statements are as follows:
WHY IS YKS NOT DELAYED?
Dear young people, first of all, we need to take this step as we know. The dates of such exams are announced months ago. The history of YKS was also announced long ago. Unfortunately, the coronavirus epidemic affected exam schedules just like everything else in our country.
Due to uncertainties, this style was inevitable because of exam dates. We prevented students from experiencing unnecessary stress.
It is entirely speculation that some claim that this date was determined to revive the tourism industry.
Normalization was put into effect on May 11, after the outbreak was taken under control.
In addition to the preparations made at the Ministry of National Education and YÖK, we conducted intensive consultations with pedagogues, students and parents. As a result of all these studies, it was seen that it would be better for our students to make the exam as soon as possible to the original date. Exam date has been determined as 27-28 as the closest date to the first announced date.
All necessary measures have been taken. I want young people to focus exclusively on the questions and goals ahead.
DOMESTIC AND SCHOLARSHIPS
In the question he asked about loans and scholarships, the scholarship awarded when we took office was only 45 TL. Now, the point we have reached at the scholarship point is much different. We have significantly increased the scholarships. As of now, the position of scholarships has been increased to 550 TL. While we provide 550 TL scholarship for undergraduate students, we give 1400 TL to graduate students, and 1650 TL to PhD students. When the job started, it was increased to 45 TL, now it is 550 TL at the license and later to 1100 TL at the credit scholarship point. It was increased to 1650 TL for doctoral students.
We will put 17 thousand 450 new dormitory beds into service.
“WE NEED TO CHANGE THE CRASH TABLE”
(What would you like to say to the young people who have not finished their studies after completing the university?) Unemployment is a serious problem for everyone. With the increase in the rate of urbanization in our country, the unemployment hidden in the agricultural sector has started to manifest itself.
Our number of university students has reached 8 million. As the level of education rises, the age at which young people are brought into life progresses. Today, when we say undergraduate and graduate, this bar has reached the age of 30.
We need to change the distorted table. Our aim is to create business areas in line with the goals of our youth. Despite all the experiences in the last 7 years, we are strictly adhering to our goals.
Turkey in front of a very large potential. We are determined to provide a workplace where we can work with peace of mind for every young person who develops themselves, who stands out with his knowledge and ability, by taking advantage of the opportunity. However, every university graduate should not be mistaken for public employment. The duty of the public is to open a business, to support everyone who wants to win, to give support. The main employment will be in the private sector, production, trade and agriculture. I want our young people to trust their talents and to search for their future in the private sector. There is no such thing as job preparation for every university graduate anywhere in the world.
Some provinces have trouble finding intermediate staff.
(Vocational high schools …) During this period, we were welcomed by the support provided by the vocational high schools to the process, which were masks, disinfectants and overalls. Our vocational high schools did not remain empty, such mask and overalls contributed to the process by producing them. In the next period, our vocational high schools will have the opportunity to produce more different products on the machines in the workshop given to them.
Regardless of which schools all the children of this country study, my children are my children. Can people differentiate their children? Whatever Imam Hatip is for me, vocational high school and Anatolian High School are also one of the children studying in other schools. The reason for addressing the Imam Hatip issue is to draw attention to unfair, unjust and unfair attacks that were attempted to scrape these schools during February 28.
“WE WILL CONNECT WITH A LEGAL REGULATION TO MAKE A RELIABLE INTERNET EXCHANGE”
(Social media subject …) In particular, we are not detached from life enough to cover our backs with reality. I’m a politician. As a politician, it is not possible to close my eyes to the facts. Today, we know that digital platforms and social media are at a negligible level. If we hated social media, I wouldn’t use it so widely. I would like to remind that I was the most watched person on Twitter, which was 16.2 million followers in our country.
The main issue here is to turn social media and internet platforms into all kinds of lies, slander, and heresy as a freely circulating medium. Will we ignore the fact that internet channels that do not remove the wrong content and do not allow correction also ignore court decisions? Do you know what would happen if one of you broke into the phone, whether your own or your brother’s private images were stolen and posted on Twitter or Facebook * You will be desperate.
Every citizen and our institution should have the right to protect their reputation in social media just like in real life.
It is my duty as President to ensure that all our citizens can use social media effectively and on moral ground. We are preparing to create a strong legal infrastructure in this regard. We will introduce our nation not only with its content but also with legal regulations we will make to a reliable internet channel.
“WE WILL CONTINUE TO COMPLY WITH THE RULES, WE WILL NEVER AGAIN FROM HERE”
(Coronavirus outbreak) We have loosened some of the strict measures we have taken. The fact that the daily number of cases and deaths has not yet fallen to the levels we want indicates that we need to give up attention and caution. The biggest task belongs to young people in this regard.
We will continue to follow the rules, we will never compromise from here. Our compromise can confront us with a situation such as losing our elders. In many places, in recreation areas, picnic areas, attention is not paid to this, and even various activities are held hand in hand, arm to arm. These events worry us seriously. Let’s apply the mask, distance and cleaning rule everywhere.
(UNIT) Oh, don’t be excited, keep calm. I believe calmly and calmly that you (students) will succeed in these exams with great success. May my Lord open your mind and your luck. “
