2016-12-01
The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceived opinions of Turkish sports high school students, teachers, and managers about the sports high schools. Participants of this study were 1283 (338 Female, 945 Male) students, 50 teachers (14 female, 36 male), and 26 (2 female, 24 male) managers from 11 sports high schools located in seven different regions of Turkey. Three different scales were developed and used separately for the students, teachers and managers of sports high schools to measure their perceived opinions about sports high schools. Results revealed that the majority of the students had shown high state of belonging and contentment to their sports high schools, managers and teachers had shown neutral scores according to state of belonging and contentment. With respect to expectations of teachers and managers for the sports high schools, managers were slightly more positive than the teachers in expectation scores. However, their expectations about the schools were not fully met or satisfied due to the insufficient facility, equipment and branch trainers. Future studies should focus on developing effective strategies to solve the facility or equipment problems in the sports high schools. Moreover, it would be beneficial to increase the number of studies examining the quality of education in the sports high schools.
