YÖK to announce whether headscarf ban to continue
Prof. Dr. Yusuf Ziya Ozcan, Chairman of Higher Board of Education (YOK), said on Sunday that YOK will convene on Monday and announce its stance after the approval of constitutional amendments aiming to lift headscarf ban in universities.

Speaking to A.A correspondent, Ozcan said, "a final shape will be given to the studies carried out by Deputy YOK Chairman Prof. Dr. Izzet Ozgenc."

When reminded statements of some rectors that they would not allow female students, wearing headscarves, to enter the universities before an arrangement was made to the additional Article 17th of the YOK Law, Ozcan said, "rectors have acted in common sense so far. I think they will act in common sense again."
