ABSTRACT
The aim of this research is to evaluate the problems experienced in multicultural schools in terms of the views of school administrators (deputy head teachers). The research was designed according to the qualitative method and is a phenomenological study. Within the scope of the research, the views of deputy head teachers working in multicultural schools were obtained through a semi-structured interview form. Easily accessible case sampling was used in the research. Data was analysed via content analysis. Many problems are experienced in schools where the children of foreign nationals who have come from various countries of the world and settled in our country are educated together with Turkish students. In this study, it is aimed to determine the problems experienced in terms of the views of the administrators working as deputy head teachers in these schools. The opinions of fifteen deputy head teachers working in various schools in different cities of Turkey were sought to reveal the problems experienced in terms of students, teachers, families, environment, curriculum, school and local administrations. As a result of the research, it has been determined that the problems are mostly focused on physical facility inadequacies, transportation, teachers' prejudice against students, loss of motivation of teachers, students' ignorance of Turkish language, lack of interest in lessons, tendency to violence, curriculum not suitable for students, prejudice of local people against foreign nationals, planning deficiencies of local administrations, communication problems arising from the fact that foreign families lack of Turkish language.
