Polat, Hakan
Journal of Education and Practice, v8 n12 p90-101 2017
The purpose of this study is to determine school administrators' entrepreneurship skills according to teacher opinions. The general screening model was used in the study. 227 teachers working in the province of Elazig constituted the sample of the study. The data were collected through the "Entrepreneurship Scale". According to the study findings, teachers stated the entrepreneurship skills of school administrators; at "I Agree" level for "Need for Achievement", "Self-Confidence" and "Internal Locus of Control" dimensions, at "I am Uncertain" level for the "Tolerance of Ambiguity", "Innovativeness" and "Risk-Taking Propensity" dimensions. With regards to the entrepreneurship skills of school administrators, no differences among the sub-dimensions were detected concerning the type of duty and type of school variables. While there were significant differences among all the sub-dimensions except for "Tolerance of Ambiguity" for the professional duration in the school variable, no differences were detected for the gender, age and educational status variable.
