Deputy director exiled in Mersin due to gender inequality

An investigation has been launched by the Directorate of National Education on the allegation that the male principal of a secondary school in Mersin insulted the female deputy principal who was engaged in scouting activities by targeting her femininity. According to the information obtained from the investigation file, the deputy director MK, who is dealing with scouting activities, talked about the scouting activity in the Tarsus Youth Camp while chatting with the principal MZ and two teachers in his own room. Meanwhile, manager MZ said, “For God’s sake, let it go. “Women who go to scout go to market themselves,” he said. In response to these words, Deputy Director MK said, “Mr. Manager, what kind of word is that? You are insulting me right now,” he said. Director MK said, “I didn’t mean you. However, 99 percent of those who go are like that.” The teachers in the room also witnessed this discussion between the vice principal and the principal.

Deputy director MK complained to the Toroslar District Directorate of National Education about these words of the director M.Z. The Directorate of National Education also stated in its response that an investigation was opened on the subject. The National Education Inspector also came to the school and listened to both the complainant deputy principal, the witness teachers and the school principal.


It was learned that the school principal M.Z insisted on the deputy principal M.K to withdraw his complaint. Director M.Z said, “Don’t pull that complaint letter, I know what I will do to you. I will shoot you with your honor. The allegation that he used the phrase “I will remove your name” was also reflected in the prosecution documents. The insult suffered by M.K., the deputy director of scouting activities, was also on the agenda of the Turkish Scouting Federation. The Federation also filed a criminal complaint against MZ, the school principal, to the prosecutor’s office, and reported the matter to the Ministry of National Education. Toroslar National Education Directorate, on the other hand, dismissed the female assistant principal from her school and sent her to another school as a teacher, without waiting for an administrative and judicial investigation. MK, who was appointed to the Chamber of Agriculture Secondary School, was dismissed from his position at the school due to recent events, but MZ, the principal at the center of the allegations and accusations, remained in his post.
