According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations of Near East University, the study was based on inclusive education carried out for 3rd, 4th and 5th year students of a primary school.

Teachers, School Authority and Parents play a significant role in the success of inclusive education of people with special needs…
Making a statement regarding their studies Assist Prof Dr Mustafa Yeniasır and Assist Prof Dr Burak Gökbulut explained that providing education to students with special needs in the same environment with students who do not have special needs is a part of inclusive education. That is, inclusive education is when all students, regardless of any challenges they may have are placed in age-appropriate general education classes. They pointed out that in order to achieve success in inclusive education, there were significant factors teachers, school management, student families and so forth.

In addition to the above, the findings of the study carried out by Assist Prof Dr Mustafa Yeniasır and Assist Prof Dr Burak Gökbulut reveal that perceptions and attitudes to peers with special needs were positive. However, more support was necessary to achieve a sustainable inclusive environment. They concluded that there was an essential need to carry out socio-cultural activities which promote more opportunities for inclusive education.
