Faruk LEVENT [1] , Gözde TÜRKMENOĞLU [2]


Bu çalışmanın amacı, okul yöneticilerinin okullardaki dedikodu ve dedikodu yönetimine ilişkin görüşlerini incelemektir. Nitel araştırma yöntemlerinden biri olan olgu bilim (fenomenoloji) ile desenlenen bu araştırmanın çalışma grubunu belirlemek üzere amaçlı örnekleme yöntemlerinden maksimum çeşitlilik örneklemesi yöntemi kullanılmıştır. Araştırmanın çalışma grubunu, Tekirdağ ili Çorlu ilçesinde bulunan ve devlet okullarında görev yapan 23 okul yöneticisi oluşturmaktadır. Çalışma grubunda yer alan okul yöneticilerinden görüşme yoluyla veri toplanabilmesi için yarı yapılandırılmış görüşme formu geliştirilmiştir. Araştırmada elde edilen veriler içerik analizi tekniği ile çözümlenmiştir. Elde edilen bulgulara göre katılımcıların çoğu, dedikoduyu kişinin arkasından olumsuz konuşma olarak tanımlamıştır ve okulda en fazla öğrenci-öğretmen ilişkileri, haftalık ders programı ve mesleki yeterliliklerin dedikodu konusu yapıldığını belirtmiştir. Ayrıca katılımcılar, dedikodu yönetimine ilişkin dedikodu yapanların ikaz edilmesinin, yönetimde şeffaflığın, eleştiriye açıklığın ve etkili iletişimin önemine dikkat çekmişlerdir.

The purpose of this study was to examine the opinions of school administrators on gossip and gossip management in schools. This research was designed with phenomenology, which is one of the qualitative research methods. In order to determine the study group of the research, maximum variation sampling method, which is one of the purposeful sampling methods, was used. The study group of the research was composed of 23 school administrators who work in public schools in the province of Çorlu, Tekirdağ, Turkey. A semi-structured interview form was developed to collect data from school administrators in the study group. The data obtained from the research were analyzed by content analysis technique. According to the findings, most of the participants explained gossip as negative talk behind someone’s back and stated that student-teacher relations, weekly course schedule and professional competences were mostly subject of gossip. In addition, with respect to gossip management, the participants pointed out the importance of giving to gossiper a warning, transparency in management and openness to criticism and communication.
