Ozdemir, Murat
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v11 n4 p1905-1908 Aut 2011
The purpose of this research is to find out the reasons that trigger teachers' dissent, how the dissenters behave and the effects of organizational dissent on the teachers, administrators, and the school. The study was conducted with the qualitative methods. 15 school administrators working in five different schools located in Mamak District in Ankara participated in the search. The data were collected with the semi-structured interview form and analyzed with the content and descriptive analysis methods. For the purpose of presenting the data, the frequencies of the administrators' opinions were tabled and also administrators' views were described with the direct quotations. Eventually, it has been seen that the basic reason that triggers the teachers' dissent behavior is official work that is given by their administrators. Another result is that dissenters commonly minimize their relations with their administrators. School administrators also think that they commonly show tolerance to the dissenters and their attitude toward them is positive. On the other hand, they consider the organizational dissent as a factor that affects their comfort negatively. And lastly they think that organizational dissent cause destructive results at school.
