Mahfuz Yalçınkaya, the pressconsultantfor Eğitim Bir-Sen, another Turkish education union, said his group was not sure whether the foreign teachers would bring a secretagendaalong with their language skills to the elementary schools and kindergartens of Turkey.

“There could be missionaries among the teachers, or they may have othergoalslike promoting their own culture,” he added.

Ünal Akyüz, head coordinator of the projects department in the Ministry of Education, said the criticism isbaselessbecause the plan will help the education system in Turkey.

The project will start in the beginning of next academic year, he told the Hürriyet Daily News & Economic Review. “The Turkish teachers willaccompanyforeign ones. They will be not allowed to be alone in the classrooms,” he said.
