With Which Values Are Elementary Schools Administered in Turkey?
Ercetin, S. Sule
This study examined the personal values of elementary school administrators in Turkey. Data were collected from 104 principals and 254 assistant principals in elementary schools located in the borders of metropolitan Ankara. Information compiled included gender, level of education, job title, seniority, and level of adoption (using a scale of 0 to 4) of personal values such as money, power, family, aesthetics, creativity, and social dimensions. Statistical analysis of the data shows that elementary school administrators adopt personal values in descending order of importance starting with family, social relations, creativity, power, aesthetic, and money. Two conclusions are that personal values of elementary school administrators are consistent with the dominant values of Turkish society, and that educational organizations do not show the level of success in creating and developing new values as they do in promulgating traditional values. It is proposed that school administrators' personal values be analyzed and redefined and that the number of female administrators be increased because their values are more harmonious with the position than men's. Statistics are presented in five tables. (RT)
