ISTANBUL – Turkey is opening up more than 20,000 teaching positions in the country after it dismissed thousands of teachers suspected of involvement in a failed coup.
Education Minister Ismet Yilmaz said on Saturday (July 23) that the new teachers will replace government teachers who have been dismissed as well as teachers in private schools with alleged links to Fethullah Gulen, a US-based cleric whom Turkey has accused of directing the coup attempt.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that 15 universities, 934 other schools and 109 student dormitories with alleged links to Gulen have been closed. DAJ/Expat Media
