Early Childhood Education in Turkey: Pre-School Teachers' Attitudes towards Diversity
Divrengi, Mihrap; Aktan, Ebru
Journal of Peace Education, v8 n1 p37-53 2011
This study examines preschool teacher attitude to respect for diversity. Findings are based on analysis of questionnaire responses gathered from a sample group of 685 teachers administered in five Istanbul districts between 2006-2007, and analysed by frequency, percentage and Chi-square. Recommendations are proposed with reference to the analysed data in light of the implications of findings in this research. In the process of developing a programme to address the issues of respect for diversity in preschools and early learning centres, the relevant research must be taken into consideration. In addition, work related to the concept of respect for diversity should be included in tertiary institutional training programmes for trainee teachers, particularly in those departments responsible for training preschool and primary class teachers. Current programme content could be reviewed to that end. (Contains 8 tables.)
