In this study, MoNE 2019-2023 strategic goals and strategic objectives under these goals were prioritized and hypothetical impact-relationship between them were presented in order to provide an example for decision-makers and to contribute to the efficient and productive use of public resources by making use of Analytical Hierarchy Process method and DEMATEL which are of the Multi Criteria Decision Making methods. The objectives and targets in the MoNE Strategic Plan were examined depending on the evaluations made by school administrators and academics who are experts in strategic planning, prioritization was made by determining the weights of strategic objectives and targets, and the hypothetical impact-relationships between strategic objectives were revealed. According to the results of the AHP, the 4th strategic goal (Students with ability to find solutions for social problems, contribute to social, cultural and economic development of the country will be trained by the help of a secondary education system that prepares them for higher education in accordance with their abilities and capacities) was found to be the most weighted and the 7th strategic goal (A supportive private schooling structure will be put into practice for all the schools in accordance with the international standards) was the least weighted. According to the results of DEMATEL, the 1st strategic goal (All of our students will be provided with the common values of our civilization and humanity, knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that are the necessities of time) was determined to be the most centralized one in the strategic plan, the 2nd strategic goal (An effective and productive management structure and organizational structure that is in accordance with modern norms will be made dominant) was the most influential goal for all others and the 7th strategic goal was the most affected one.
