Universal Journal of Educational Research, v5 n3 p357-365 2017
This study investigates the relationship between students' perception of school climate and their adherence to humanitarian values. To this end, the study group consisted of 1094 students in 21 secondary schools in Elazig province of Turkey. The "School Climate Scale," developed by Çalik and Kurt, and the "Humanitarian Values Scale," developed by Dilmaç, were used to collect data. The findings of the study indicated that female students have a higher level of adherence to humanitarian values. In addition, it was found that school activities towards values education have a significant effect on adherence to humanitarian values. It was concluded that teacher support, success orientation and safe learning environment-positive peer interactions, which are important components of positive school climate, positively affect adolescents' adherence to humanitarian values. In parallel with these findings, some recommendations were made, which can be applied to the building school environment for practitioners.
