Abstract

Knowing the fact that information can be spread with the speed of light nowadays, because of our civilization’s growth and intelligence, we are aware of the need of constant change inside educational institutions in order to stay modern and future oriented. In addition, the majority of the human’s society have a tendency to keep things as they are, because they feel safe with known and familiar objects. How can we constantly change ourselves if it is in our nature to resist change? How can school culture shape our behavior and attitudes towards educational change? This paper tries to identify several markers of school culture that ensure safer and more pleasant transition toward the envisioned educational change. Mutual cooperation and collaboration, mutual understanding, open communication and trust are the key factors that are participating in building school culture that will embrace educational change as something that is not threatening, but – something that is expected step towards success and towards the future.
