Abstract

This study was aimed at identification of the values, grounding educational practices in the school as an organization in the context of a learning organization, and how employees perceive them. For the research of organizational values 170 teachers of Kaunas city schools were interviewed. Questionnaire was based on dimensions of organizational values determined by Glomseth, R., Gottschalk, P. & Hole A. S. (2010), who constitute a scale of 21 bipolar values with the additional statements reflecting learning organization issues. The project LangOER 2013 – 4107 / 001 – 001); (No. 543239-LLP1-1-2013-LV-KA2-KA2NW (the Faculty of Public Security at Mykolas Romeris University is the partner in a Consortium led by the Fryske Academy in the Netherlands) enabled approaching Lithuanian teachers with the question about the relation between learning in organizations and the values behind learning. The research data allow to conclude that teachers perceived their organizations as potentially learning organizations, but also the barriers for the development of the school into a learning organization can be identified.
