In this study, it was aimed to determine to what extent the problems detected at the guidance and supervision reports could be solved and in this context, to what degree these visits were functional. So, with a qualitative research approach, data were obtained at two stages and analyzed through NVivo 7 software. At the first stage, the guidance and supervision reports of 2007-2008 academic year were obtained from Education Supervisors Board and were analyzed comparatively for forty primary schools which were randomly selected from the schools in the city center of Yozgat. At the second stage, ten education supervisors were interviewed. The results of the research showed that there were some problems unsolved at each of the six categories (physical situation, instructional situation, clerical works, student affairs, personnel affairs and affairs of budget and movable goods). Especially the physical problems that necessitate pecuniary resource and instructional problems that require some competencies related to the new curriculum were revealed to remain unsolved in most of the schools. It was recommended for schools to be allocated a sufficient budget and for school administrators and teachers to be equipped with necessary competencies to solve problems.
