Being an appliance of the education system, schools have a feature that causes change in the system but at the same time they are being affected as well. This process can be painful in school which is the center of this change and further innovations. In our country, which was implemented into a new education system 4+4+4 do you think it was a painful process? In addition, do you think teachers or school administrators experienced some sort of info-pollution during this transition. What do they know about 4+4+4? Do you think teachers and administrators were informed enough? Based on the data obtained, does it reveal the opposite? What kind of changes that new education system brought? In the light of new regulations schooling age dropped down to 6, primary school regulated in 4 years so did secondary school and high school. This educational process meant that compulsory education would be 12 years due to the lack of given diploma to student during the 4 year breaks among the schools. As a result Turkey’s 8-year compulsory education has been risen behind in terms of training time in comparison with other countries.
