Abstract

The purpose of the study is to examine employees’ individual attitudes towards diversity management and respect for diversity in secondary education in views of secondary school administrators and teachers, and to explore the relationship between these concepts. According to the results of the study, administrators and teachers in secondary schools display positive individual attitudes and behaviours towards diversity. School administrators and teachers’ organizational norms and values associated with diversity are positive. However, there is a low positive relationship between respect for diversity and diversity management.

Keywords: Diversity, Diversity Management, Respect for Diversity.
