Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the ways primary education administrators solve events of violence as a problem. To this end, sample cases of violence were derived from the school violence news appearing on media organs in the last four years. They were categorized based on the type of violence. Method: Data were collected via a semi-structured interview form developed by the researcher and administered to school administrators. In-depth data were collected in regard to the ways they would solve problems. The content formed by the obtained data was evaluated via systematic, descriptive analysis. Results: To determine the problem of violence in school, school administrators mostly turn to teachers’ and students’ views and video-recording and sound-recording. To solve the problems, on the other hand, they resort to family/parent training and implement what is prescribed in the legislation. The administrators did not express any opinion about predetermined possible solutions.
