Suriye’de başlayan iç savaş boyunca birçok Suriye vatandaşı başka ülkelere göç etmek zorunda kalmıştır. Bu ülkelerin başında, Suriye’nin en uzun sınıra sahip komşusu Türkiye gelmektedir. Suriye’den Türkiye’ye göç başladığından bu yana, Türkiye’deki devlet okullarında binlerce Suriyeli çocuk öğrenim görmektedir. Bu araştırma okul ve okul çevresinde Suriyeli mültecilerin kapsayıcı eğitimlerinin önündeki engellere kaynaklık eden motivasyonları ortaya çıkarmayı amaçlamaktadır. Bu nitel araştırma bir durum çalışması olarak desenlenmiştir. Bu doğrultuda, Suriyeli mülteci öğrencilerin öğrenim gördüğü okullarda görev yapan 12 öğretmen ve 5 okul yöneticisi ile, Suriyeli ve Türk öğrencilerin velilerinden meydana gelen 10 öğrenci velisi araştırmanın çalışma grubunu oluşturmaktadır. Araştırmanın verileri, araştırma kapsamında uygulanan yarı yapılandırılmış görüşmeler ve sahada edinilen gözlemlerden yoluyla elde edilmiştir. Verilerin analizi sonucunda dört ana temaya ulaşılmıştır: “Dil Farklılığı”, “Temel Sosyal Problemlerin Okuldaki Yansımaları”, “Entegrasyon Politikaları Temelli İkilemler” ve “Bir Dahil Olma Alanı Olarak Ortak Kökler”. Araştırma sonuçları, Suriyeli mültecilere kapsayıcı eğitimlerin önündeki engelleri kaldırmada kolektif ve bütüncül bir yaklaşımın gerekli olduğunu ortaya koymaktadır.

There have been thousands of Syrian kids studying at Turkish public schools since the beginning of Syrian migration. This study aims to reveal the social and cultural motivations causing the barriers in front of inclusive education of Syrian refugees within school environments. This qualitative research was designed as a case study. Accordingly, the study group of the research is composed of 12 teachers and 5 administrators from five schools having Syrian refugee students and 10 parents consisting of both Syrian and Turkish kids. The data was gathered through semi-structured interviews. At the end of the data analysis, four main themes were found as: “Language Diversity”, “Reflections of Major Social Problems in Schools”, “The Dilemmas Based upon Integration Policies” and “Mutual Roots as an Inclusion Area”. Results of this study show that a collective and holistic approach is necessary to overcome the barriers in front of inclusive education of Syrian refugees.
