Abstract


Education is the most decisive factor in the success of people in life and work. Today expectations in education have changed. Increases in education levels and facility of ways to access information have differentiated our level of social consciousness. Educational expectations of parents and teachers have also changed. There is now a mass who feign reluctance more and have a higher expectation from the school. Teachers’ expectations of students are also increasing. Researches examining the effects of school variables on student achievement have increased in recent years. Many studies indicate that schools with desirable characteristics have positive effects on student achievement. There are a large number of components that make the school environment come to life. Classroom sizes at schools, school culture, teaching methods used by teachers and professional qualifications are some of them. These components affect the satisfaction levels of teachers and parents working in schools.
