Dear Authors,

PoliTeknik has been in circulation in Turkish and German since 2014 and now, with the support of participants from all over the world, it has also been published in English, Spanish and Portuguese. This is the second edition of the year 2020, in which authors share their ideas and suggestions regarding the extension of the human right to education contained in Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To this end, a group of volunteers from Brazil, South Africa, Great Britain, India, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Colombia, Germany, Turkey, etc., join forces at PoliTeknik United as part of a joint editorial board. Therefore, one can follow the electronic addresses below to access the magazines:
