Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v39 n2 p242-256 Mar 2011
The main purpose of this article is to assess the opinions of district governors, who are the highest ranked civilian authority within a district, on educational problems and solutions at the local level. A qualitative research approach was utilized. The district governors believe that they have a very significant and active role in raising standards of education in Turkey. The findings show that district governors spend a considerable amount of time on education-related issues. The district governors asserted that central government should simply determine the general policies concerning education and provide them with more authority.
