In Turkey, it is unfortunately seen to have been
made in order to fulfil legal obligations as built improvements for the
accessibility existing physical spaces of disabled people. Accordingly, people
with disabilities face a number of problems in the life of the society. For
this reason, it is necessary to take precautions to ensure that the disabled
people's participation in processes for social life such as especially
education and health can be ensured without problems. Together with the
resolution of these problems, disabled people will also have attained to an
accessible environment and higher standards of living. The main objective of
this study is to examine what extent accessible for physically disabled
individuals of the National Education School buildings located in Karabük
province. Because many of the educational buildings are unfortunately not
designed for disabled people. In this study, the accessibility problem for the
disabled people of the selected school building by examining the school buildings
in the centre of Karabük province affiliated with the Ministry of National
Education will be presented some solutions and suggestions. The obtained
results show that the majority of the primary and secondary school buildings in
the centre of Karabük province affiliated with National Education are not
suitable for the accessibility of the disabled individuals. Also, it is seen
that the earthquake safety of the school buildings in question does not meet
terms of the Turkey Earthquake Regulations of which is in force today, too. For
this reason, it seems that school buildings should in question be strengthened
in such a way that most of the together improvements to disability
accessibility will provide earthquake safety.
