In the section where reccommendations are given for actions to be taken to be able to pay the fidelity debt to the working children in Turkey, also information about health-social service supply model(Fişek Model)is presented.

An Excerpt from the Article:

According to us the society has a fidelity debt to apprentices. While their coevals study benefiting from public funds and live their childhood; others that had to enter the working life by leaving the school, join the production process actively and moreover loose their child identity and try to play the role of an adult. So, what we should discuss is how are we going to force the society to pay this fidelity debt. (p.116)
