An Investigation of Prospective Teachers’ Attitudes toward Educational Reforms in Turkey


The main purpose of the present study is twofold: (a) to investigate the awareness and attitudes of prospective teachers from different departments and class levels regarding current educational reforms in Turkey and the reasons why they do or do not adhere to these reform activities, and (b) to gain thorough knowledge about information resources that they use and the problems that they encounter while learning about and sharing current educational reforms. The study was conducted with 23 prospective teachers drawn from the Education Faculty of Akdeniz University, and it used a two-stage sampling method. A semi-structured interview form developed by the researchers was employed as the data collection instrument. The interview form included four demographic and 12 open-ended questions. The tape-recorded interviews were transcribed and verbatim transcriptions were analyzed via quantitative data analysis.
