Turkish court rejects CHP’s appeal to annul education law

The Constitutional Court has rejected an appeal filed by the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) requesting the annulment of some articles of a recently approved law which increases the duration of compulsory education from eight years to 12, during a meeting on September 20.

The law, passed in Parliament in March and approved by President Abdullah Gül within weeks, increased the current duration of compulsory education from an uninterrupted eight years to 12 years and divided it into three four-year stages -- primary school, middle school and high school -- and is popularly known as the “4+4+4” education law.

The CHP, a staunch critic of the law, filed an appeal with the Constitutional Court in June for the second time after the Constitutional Court rejected its first appeal to annul the education law on procedural grounds in May.

The Constitutional Court will publish details of its decision on its website on September 21.
