Sözleşmeli Okul Müdürlerinin Liderlik Sorunları
Leadership Challenges of Charter School Principals

Mehmet Emirhan KULA [1] , Anıl TARI [2]


Öğrencilerin eğitim görebilmeleri için farklı türde okullar vardır. Sözleşmeli okullar bu opsiyonlardan biridir ve “kamu tarafından finanse edilen, diğer devlet okullarına göre kurallar, yönetmelikler ve tüzükler bazında birtakım serbestlikleri bulunan, buna karşı sorumluluk sahibiolmaları adına her sözleşmeli okulun sözleşmesinde ayrı ayrı belirlenmiş uyması gereken kuralların bulunduğu okullardır” (www.nea.org). Bu çalışmada ilk olarak eğitim önemine kısaca değinilecek ve görülecektir ki her ne kadar okullara kayıt oranlarında yükseliş görülse de devlet okulları yeterince başarılı olamamaktadır. İkinci olarak, Amerika Birleşik Devletlerinde sözleşmeli okulların tarihçesi ve finansman yöntemleri ele alınacaktır. Yine bu çalışma göstermektedir ki, sözleşmeli okullara kayıt oranlarında ciddi derecede artış söz konusudur.Bunların ışığında hem devlet hem de sözleşmeli okulların müdürlerinin sorunları tartışılmıştır. Bu çalışma aynı zamanda, sözleşemli okulların başarılı oluşlarında okul müdürlerinin liderlik karakteri sergilemelerinin önemine vurgu yapmaktadır. Sonuç olarak, her ne kadar sözleşmeli okullar diğer devlet okullarına göre oldukça başarılı olsalar da, sözleşmeli okulların genel başarılarının yükselmesi için dönüşümcü liderlik model olarak önerilmektedir.
There are different kinds of schools for pupils to attend and get educated. Charter schoolsare one those options, which are “publicly funded elementary and secondary schools that havebeen freed some of the rules, regulations, and statutes that apply to other public schools, inexchange for some type of accountability for producing certain results, which are set forth in eachcharter school’s charter” (www.nea.org). In this article, firstly, a brief explanation of theimportance of education is presented as the introduction which states, many studies indicate thatthere is an increase in the enrollment of the schools, however, there are studies demonstratingthat not all public school pupils are successful enough. Second, the background of charter schoolsin the U.S. and charter school financing are identified. This study are presents that there is asignificance increase of the enrollment of charter schools. Following this, the overall principalissues (both charter and public school principals) are discussed. This study is also highlightedthat, the leadership of charter school principals is an essential aspect of the success of charterschool. Finally, although the overall success of charter schools is much better than public school,transformational leadership is suggested as the position of the authors which is argued to improvethe overall success of charter schools.
