When change is deemed necessary, principals' attitudes towards changes are significant for successful restructuring of schools. This study aimed to ascertain the extent to which principals in Malatya, Turkey, are open to change. A questionnaire was administered to 156 elementary and secondary school principals in Malatya, Turkey. This questionnaire consisted of 18 items describing and measuring principals' openness to change on three dimensions: affective, cognitive, and behavioral. Results showed that principals were eminently open to the changes in every dimension regardless of demographic characteristics. (Contains 10 tables.)
