Syrian students have succeeded with the responsible project of the idealist school

Four teachers went to Amsterdam in the Netherlands as part of the “Education is also a refugee’s right” project run by the haliliye calligrapher Behchet Arabi Imam Hatip Secondary School.

The teachers who went through various trainings here returned to the country after completing their education.

European countries, with their strict policy towards Muslim refugees, reflect Western attitudes towards Muslims.

Refugees arriving in Europe are first housed in camps and then given language and trauma training. Those who succeed in this course are housed in state buildings. Refugees also receive language and integration lessons in these homes. The losers are sent back. Refugee students are barred from attending a school and are distributed at the school. A school has a maximum of 3 refugee students.

European countries, which have strict policies for Syrian refugees, apply hypocritical policies to their co-religionists. The West, ignoring the onslaught of Islamic geography, opened its doors to Ukrainian refugees after the Ukraine-Russia war. The strict policy that has been applied to Syrian refugees does not apply to Ukrainian refugees.

Turkey, on the other hand, is opening its doors and hosting about 5 million Syrian refugees. Especially the Syrian refugees who have settled in Sanliurfa, its border neighbors, are trying to remove the signs of war here.

Half of the students at Behet Arabi Imam Hatip Secondary School, a calligrapher in Halilia district, are Syrian students.

With European-backed education projects implemented by the school administration, students achieve success while taking a distance in adaptation.

Ahmet Ergun, director of Imam Hatip Secondary School in Behet Arabi, and teachers who went to the Netherlands as part of the “Education Refugee Rights” project spoke to Ilkha about the situation of Syrian students and Europe’s attitude towards refugees.

“An estimated 5 million people have entered Turkey illegally.”

Ahmed Ergun, director of Imam Hatip Secondary School in Behet Arabi, a calligrapher, said that the influx of people began as soon as the civil war broke out in Syria. Nearly 5 million people entered Turkey illegally. Due to its proximity to the Sanliurfa border, about one million refugees came here. At the end of 7 years, that number dropped to 500,000. The Transitional Education Center (GEM) was opened. Following the TEC, an integration project into the Turkish national education system was created and distributed to refugee children in schools. We had serious problems with our studies because these students were socially, culturally, psychologically and linguistically inadequate, “she said.

“There are no students in our school who do not speak Turkish.”

As the calligrapher Behet Arabi Imam Hatip Secondary School, they see the problems of Syrian students as a responsibility project, Ergan said, “In 2018, we collaborated with 5 EU countries and created the ‘KA229 project’. So, education, psychology, socialization, Addition, adaptation and we have tried to overcome this by collaborating with other European countries to ensure their integration. Last week, 4 of our teachers went to Amsterdam, the Netherlands to study under the scope of the European Union project. There is a serious integration and socialization among Urfa students. We have made significant progress in education. As a result of the outstanding efforts of our Turkish teachers, especially in language education, there are no students in our school who do not speak Turkish. We have seen them perform. ” He said.

“We have seen that bonds of solidarity and brotherhood have developed among the students and they have become social.”

Referring to the success of Syrian students enrolled in their school, Ergun said, “Last year, we had one of the top Syrian students in the LGS exam. This student is continuing his studies at Nekmatin Erbakan Imam Hatip High School. This year, we have 2 Syrian students, they are in first and second place depending on the grade of the first semester. We saw that the bond of solidarity and brotherhood between Syrian and Turkish students has developed in our school and they have socialized. Playing games together, shaking hands and we’ve seen a serious acceptance. There’s no difference between Syrian and Turkish students. Related to this, we’ve seen how Ukrainians, who became refugees as a result of the war between Ukraine and Russia a month ago, are embraced by Europeans. And embrace. We don’t see refugee children in Turkey as’ refugees. Fast. ” Used phrases.

Turkish teacher Baris Pinar

“Netherlands has strict policy against Syrian refugees”

“The Netherlands has a strict policy towards Syrian refugees. The Netherlands is a country that unites very different people. There are 175 different ethnic groups, but most of them are not refugees,” said Bar শিক্ষক Pınar, a Turkish teacher who criticizes Europe’s attitude towards refugees. They came here as ‘brain drain’. They do not take refugees into their country at random, they go through very strict education. They try to integrate refugees into their own system. They also send back those who did not unite. Their attitude towards Ukrainian students is more moderate than their attitude towards Syrian students. There are cultural and religious reasons for this too. During the war in Syria, Europe tried to close all its borders to Syrian refugees. They negotiated with Turkey. They. They do not want to repatriate Syrian refugees as they begin sending aid to Turkey to close its border with Greece. They took the scabbard to their home country and kept it in the camp, “he said

“We can do better with Syrian students now.”

“We had a lot of problems in the early years of the war in Syria. We didn’t know what to do or how to do it. When the refugees came in large numbers, first, We didn’t know what to do and how to work. The cultural differences were extreme. Things started to settle down in recent years. We learned how to communicate over time through experience. “We can now blend in better with Syrian students. We have no problem integrating into culture and language. We have no problem with religion. The problem is, we belong to the same religion. We can say that we have reduced our problems now.” He spoke

“Among our first three students are Syrian students who will take exams this year.”

Talking about the success of Syrian students and their impact on them, Pinar said, “We are more prone to violence against Syrian refugees. We consider this situation normal because they came out of a war. They came from an environment that we do not have.” No matter what we say, we understand them, but as we study them, it becomes more difficult for children to feel the situation psychologically. “It will have a big impact. Because of this, they tend to be a little more violent Last year our top student was a Syrian. Among our first three students are Syrian students who will take the exam this year. There are also very successful and low achieving students. They’ve been together for the last few years, “he said.

Arabic teacher Husna Akgun

“There are very strict policies against refugees”

The scope of his research in the project indicates that European countries have a very strict policy towards refugees, said Husna Akgun, an Arabic teacher. “We have to start with Europe’s attitude towards refugees. There is a very strict policy. A school of 600 people can accommodate a maximum of 3 refugees. They say that with the war our country has become a refugee camp. Refugee camps are set up. Maybe they are kept in the state building. They have to spend at least one year in that house. Again, language and integration lessons are given here. “The unsuccessful ones are sent back. We don’t have that opportunity and since we’ve lived together for years, we’re trying our best to bring them together. There is no question of sending refugees back to our country, “he said

“Syrian students have become ‘one of us'”

Noting that Syrian students are now accustomed to Turkey and have no problems with other students, Akgun said, “Before this program, there was a normal inequality and mild harassment among students with the arrival of refugees in the first era. The language problem was very acute. We have tried to include refugee students. They have gained confidence through the activities they have undertaken. They have started to become ‘one of us’. They used to play sports separately. The school has become closer to the parents with the visit of the parents. We had the opportunity to know. They are better. We can communicate more easily with the parents. Yes, this situation has now been reset .. We do not currently have any students who do not speak Turkish.All students are children reading books They get up and send us the books they read. “

“Syrian students had adjustment problems due to their previous habits”

Noting that the Syrians were related to Turkish culture from Arab culture, Akgun said, “As far as is known, Syrians came to Turkey with Arab culture. Meeting. These habits continued until midnight. “The child was also included in this habit. This is a negative situation for Syrian students, who are now living like us. A Syrian shopkeeper can now open his shop at 08:00 in the morning and close his shop at 10:00 in the evening, “he said.

“Learning Turkish was a little difficult”

Referring to his arrival in Turkey from the city of Deir ez-Zor in 2016, Abdelmouti El Hadid said, “When I came to Turkey after the war, I had difficulty interacting with people. Over time, we became accustomed to this situation. We were with other students. We made friends. We overcame those situations. Learning Turkish was a little difficult. “I understand. I love my school very much. I was at another school before coming to this school. I couldn’t be. Comfortable at that school, so here I am. Thanks to my teachers, I feel comfortable in this school. “
