Ercan Yılmaz, Gulnar Jafarova


 ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between effective schools and the variables of leadership and school climate. In the study, the meta-analysis method which is one of the quantitative methods was used. With the purpose of collecting data, the dissertations and articles written in the national and international level in 1990-2016 were reviewed and 11 studies on the relationship between effective schools and leadership and 6 studies on the relationship between effective schools and school climate were subject to effect size analysis. In the study, the correlation coefficient was used as the effect size index. The correlation coefficients were joined with the Fisher z method according to the random effects model. The Comprehensive Meta-Analysis 2.00 (CMA) software was used in the analysis of data. Based on the relationship between effectiveness of school and leadership, the Fisher Z effect size was determined as 0.595; and based on the relationship between effectiveness of school and school climate, the effect size was determined as 0.559. As a result of the study, a positive, strong and significant relationship was determined between effectiveness of school and leadership and school climate (p<.05).

Key words: school effectiveness, leadership, climate, meta-analysis, education.
