In October, the OECD published its report: EDUCATION POLICY OUTLOOK: TURKEY.

The report shows that Turkey has made significant improvements in PISA mathematics and science assessments, but remains below the OECD average in reading, mathematics and science. Turkey has a higher-than-average proportion of underperforming students, and

academic achievement is particularly low amongst disadvantaged students from low socio-economic backgrounds. Graduation rates tertiary education are below the OECD average, but they have increased significantly since 2005, and reforms have been introduced at both levels.
