The aim of this study is to find out the views of the school managers, who work in different economic and social developmental regions in Turkey, on social responsibility. 279 primary and secondary school managers participated in the research. According to the research, school managers' views on social responsibility differed according to the city, they work: Erzurum or Manisa. When these views were evaluated in terms of the institution they work, it can be said that primary school managers had more positive ideas about human rights, environmental problems, and business ethic than secondary school managers did. The school managers in both cities put the professional responsibility in the first row. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
