Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2016
This description of Burak Ulman's work was prepared when Burak Ulman was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2016.
Burak and Another School is Possible Association (ASIP) are building a civic participation movement of parents, educators, students, activists and entrepreneurs who are for the first time, building their own solutions to the seemingly intractable problems of the Turkish education system. Through their child-centred, ecologically friendly, democratic and non-profit cooperative school model that is spreading rapidly, they are demonstrating that another school is indeed possible, while at the same time shifting the mind-sets of parents and teachers from across Turkey to transform its one-size fits all, out-dated and disempowering education system from within.
