Primary education executives (Doctoral thesis)

Κλινάκης, Απόστολος


The present study aims at highlighting the factors that are related to the pedagogical, administrative and social dimensions of the role of education executives in the 21st century. Considering that the contribution of executives to the shaping and success of educational events and reforms is decisive, we are urged to investigate this role and their attitudes in relation to their profession but mainly in relation to the exert of administrative tasks and hierarchical structures within the educational system. This survey, which uses both quantitative and qualitative research methods, was conducted in March 2014 using questionnaires. Survey conclusions 108 Education executives took part in this survey, 58 out of the 108 were men (54%) and 50 (46%)were women. The biggest part of the questioned persons participated in the survey were from Crete and were men aged 48-56 years old. Concerning the level of education, everyone was a university graduate without having a postgraduate degree. About the question < Have you ever attended any extra education? Almost everyone replied positively. The next question was < Have you ever experienced the syndicalism? Most of the questioned had never such an experience before. As far as the Institutional framework of their selection is concerned ,all the candidates invoked the relevant laws. In the question they answered they had. In the question It seems that they didn’t need to do anything like that at all. In the question They declared they had lack of freedom generally. In the question the questioned aimed at advising, encouraging and urging for education. The participants made no suggestions to the Ministry of Education about the educational situation . The question about the importance they believed to have on the planning of the educational policy , showed a great disappointment. The majority of the participants answered that yes, their role would be more important in some issues, if the initiative framework was different. The basic reasons for someone to choose to exert the role of the administrator are to help or to offer to his colleagues and generally to his educational work. In the question Many of them mentioned their teaching experience marking the teaching school years. During the survey a good relationship between the executives and their foremen was noticed and this was a positive influence for the executives. It’s also important to mention that no reform influenced the role of their choice. Essentially, the job of a teacher should be rightly characterized as a function. The democratic participatory models are always preferred because they are considered to be more effective.
