Silman, Fatos; Ozmatyatli, Icim Ozenli; Birol, Cem; Caglar, Mehmet
Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v42 p356-366 2012
This study was conducted to compare the organizational culture in two TRNC schools by using influencing factors of metaphors, physical environment, values, norms, rituals, language, legends and reward systems. To obtain data, a triangulation of participant interviews, observations and written sources were used. Results appear to display that the youth are losing their ties to their national values whereas the State tries imbue students with the importance of national values through rituals and ceremonies at schools. While the organizational culture of both schools is becoming more progressive, according to the participants, younger generations may be in danger of losing some of intrinsic, traditional values since students might not consider them important anymore.
