AN EVALUATION OF TEACHERS' VIEWS OF PRIMARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS' PRACTICE OF DEMOCRATIC VALUES
Abstract:The purpose of the study was to evaluate teachers’ views about the level of practice of democratic values by primary school principals. Participants were 300 primary school teachers from four different regions of Turkey. The data were collected through a questionnaire, and analyzed by using t test and ANOVA tests. Results indicate that gender, educational level, and membership of a union make a difference in terms of practicing democratic values. Furthermore, some meaningful differences were noted in the subdimension of the questionnaire depending on the teachers' professional experience and on the present number of students as variables.
