Goal of the study is to compare training and appointing processes of education administrators in developed and developing countries to see similarities and differences and also the situation in Turkey so as to give some suggestion thought to have some positive impacts on training and appointing-related problems of Turkish Education. Within the terms of this main goal, some developed countries such as England, United States, France and Finland as well as some developing countries such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary have been compared and contrasted in terms of training and appointing processes of education administrators. When taken insight into the results of the study; developed countries except for France have some pre-service training programs and this is a prior requirement to be appointed. When it comes to France, two-year on-the-job training is needed. Master degree in education management is also a pre-requisite for appointing in developing and developed countries but Turkey and Bulgaria. With the result of the study, it has turned out to be that Turkey hasn't got a pre-service training process among all those countries and the policy for education administrators' choosing and appointing has been changed almost every year over the past 10 years. In addition, it is seen that political interference is frequent thus leading to some conflicts. In view of solving Turkey's education problems in general, training, choosing and appointing processes of education administrators must be regulated in the light of new, permanent and consistent laws.
