A small part of it?? Well that's not exactly what I was taught in school.

Well, you were taught wrong.

The cliché that Turkey is European comes from Western liberalists and leftists. Most of Turkey is still more Middle Eastern and Western Asian than Europe regarding lifestyle, culture, religion, nature, people etc.

Do you consider Georgia and Armenia European? Do you consider Albania? Do you consider the backwoods of much of southeastern Europe?

Turkey seems like it's in-between larger cultural spheres as does the adjacent Levant (Syria and Lebanon).

To be fair, he does have "no speak English" as his status

I would say Finland has the best system for primary and secondary education.

The USA has some of the best Universities in the world but I wouldn't say the whole "system" is the best. It's just the logical outcome if you have dozens of Universities which charge insanely high tuition fees, some of them are going to stand out but most students won't be able to attend these prestigious Universities so I wouldn't say the average American student is "better off" with the American system. The American system is best suited for people who are either very intelligent or very wealthy, or both.

Georgia and Armenia are questionable, you could argue either way. Albania is certainly European and I've never heard anyone question that. It's located in between Italy, Greece and Montenegro so you'd be silly to say it wasn't European

A small part of Turkey is located in Europe and this includes Istanbul. Most of Turkey is geographically located in Asia, however. There is nothing even remotely European about Syria.
