Abstract

FATIH project (Movement of Enhancing Opportunities and Improving Technology) is an information and communication technologies (ICT) project to promote social justice for all schools in Turkey. The educational movements and reforms in Turkish Educational System (TES) are not new but this project has a purpose to integrate the newest technologies into school curriculum nationwide. This study aims to explore how the FATIH project ensures social justice in the context of education. In order to achieve the goal, quantitative data is collected on teachers' views. The data is consisted of survey responses from teachers who practically involve in the project. The theoretical framework of the study was built on Cribb and Gewirtz' (2003) social justice perspectives which presents distributive, cultural and associational justice. The finding of the study shows that the teachers have hope that the project will overcome some injustice issues in TES but there are new injustice appearing with the project as well.
