''Anyone who has the opportunity should give support to education''
Nihat Zeybekci, ''In 2004 we opened the first study center. At that time it was unimaginable the importance of this project. Municipalities must provide equality of opportunity for education. We had to provide this opportunity for those people who couldn't afford to send their children to private courses. We started this project from the peripheral neighborhoods and today we are providing these services all over Denizli, ''he said.
"I congratulate our Metropolitan Municipality"
Zeybekci, ''Comparing with 12 years ago, today we are on a much better place in the field of education. The state budget for education and educational area has increased 4-5 times. there are still areas that should be increased to get to the level of contemporary civilization in the 21st century. Looking to other world's nations we can see that our situation is not pink at all. There are states such as South Korea which was at the same level with us 10-15 years ago and now it has done the average level of education of 14 years. We just went over 7 years. We started this over 5 years. To get the education level of contemporary civilization we have to make an overall mobilization. Anyone who has the opportunity should give support to education. These study centers are very important for all our children and young people. I congratulate our Denizli Metropolitan Municipality for its contribution to education. I wish all the best to our new study center, ''he said.
