Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the organizational silence level of teachers working at public highschools and see whether level of organizational silence differ depending on demographic factors (gender, age, professional length of service, length of service at the present school, level of education and professional branch variable). This research is a descriptive study modelled as screening. The sample consists of 562 teachers. The results showed that the level of organizational silence of teachers is “moderate”. It is seen that the organizational silence level is “moderate” due to subdimensions such as school enviroment, origin of silence and isolation, “high” due to subdimensions like emotions and administration. The research showed that length of service at the present school, level of education and professional branch variable are not statistically significant in the sense of level of organizational silence of teachers in total and in all subdimensions. Besides, school environment subdimension due to gender and age factors, and total organizational silence and isolation subdimension due to professional length of service are found to be statistically significant.
