Yaylaci, Ali Faruk
Education, v137 n2 p233-247 Win 2016
This study intends to explore the perspectives of school administrators, teachers, and parents on the rights and responsibilities of teachers and parents in terms of organizational citizenship. The study was designed as a qualitative research. The study group consisted of 95 participants in total (20 school administrators, 20 teachers, 15 parents, 20 pre-service teachers, who are senior students at Recep Tayyip Erdogan University, Faculty of Education, and 20 pre-service teachers, who have graduated from various faculties but taken pedagogical formation training). The participants, who were all working in Rize, Turkey during the 2014-15 academic year, were selected through purposive sampling. The data was collected by semi-structured interview forms, and analyzed by descriptive and content analysis. Finally, it was discussed in relation with the related literature. According to the findings of the study, the participants believe that being a member of the school community brings about a set of rights and responsibilities for all sides. Nearly all of the participants disregarded the political rights, generally making reference to civic and community rights which focus on responsibilities and are shaped by the position held at school.
