Çankaya, Ibrahim; Saglam, Aycan Çiçek; Tan, Çetin
Excellence in Education Journal, v9 n3 p82-96 Fall 2020
The aim of this study was to demonstrate the opinions of teacher candidates, who were born after 2000 and called Generation Z, about the concept of school autonomy. This quantitative research was conducted according to the descriptive survey model. The data obtained is based on the responses given by teacher candidates to the "School Autonomy" questionnaire that was prepared for school administrators as part of the 2012 PISA exam. Generation Z teacher candidates in general hold the opinion that the authority to make decisions should lie with the school when it comes to determining the annual school budget, making disciplinary decisions about students, evaluating students' success, accepting students to school, choosing textbooks and determining the courses to be taught. Teacher candidates also believe that the ministry, provincial education directorates and schools should cooperate in the selection of schools and determination of their annual salaries.
