The Organizational Values of "Gimnazija" in Slovenia
Pang, Nicholas Sun-Keung
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v34 n3 p319-343 2006
This article assesses the organizational values of "gimnazija" in Slovenia and examines the factors that contribute to the building of quality management. The theoretical framework is built on Schein's model of levels of culture, Sathe's interpretation of organizational culture and Getzels and Guba's model of organizational behaviour. Based on the data collected from a sample of 289 teachers from 23 "gimnazija" randomly selected in Slovenia, a 58-item instrument, the school values inventory (SVI), was developed. If school administrators are to build quality management in "gimnazija", they should decentralize school management to the level of the teacher and emphasize rationality, participation, collaboration, collegiality, goal orientation, communication, consensus, professional orientation and teacher autonomy in their daily managerial practices. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.)
