Crimean Tatars paid great attention to the education of their children. Previously, schools operated even in small villages. For example, in the village of Sydzhivut (Kara-Sedzheut) with a population of just over 100 people there was a school where 15-20 children studied. The historian Abduraman Bari wrote about this. Villagers often used their own money to invite teachers trained in Turkey. In addition to lessons on religion, children were taught grammar, reading, geography, mathematics.
