Abstract

The aim of this study is to asses the perceptions of the parents concerning the implication of the full-time education that was recently tried in one of the government elementary school and is planned to be adapted in all schools in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). As a result of literature survey and by consulting experts, a questionnaire is constructed for full-time education. The questionnaire is designed for the whole TRNC. However, this study is the second part of ongoing study and represents the findings of the perceptions of the parents especially living in Nicosia province. Out of 522 parents randomly selected, 488 questionnaires were filled without any mistakes or missing parts and considered to be used for statistical analysis. The results of statistical analysis show that there is a support from the parents regarding the adaptation of full-time education in TRNC. However, the findings also indicate that the infrastructures of the schools are not sufficient and should be improved, and teachers, school principles and the community are still not ready for full-day education.
