In order to cope with this problem, can be provided increasing the quality of learning environments, the restructuring of the school system based on the qualifications of the school system, increasing the quantity and quality of the academic staff, and the integration of information and communication technologies into the training programs. Therefore, changes should be made in the education system in order to improve the quality of school and teaching. However, the success of change initiatives is generally low. In order for the change process to be successful, employees should be informed about change and their concerns should be addressed and the goals of change must be unified with the purposes of the employees.
The aim of the study is to determine the perceptions of primary and secondary school teachers and their administrators about the areas of their schools need to be improved and to determine whether these perceptions differ in terms of some variables.
