This can facilitate the sharing of ideas, best practices and resources between teachers, school staff and parents. Shared Educational Values: Organizational culture defines the values and norms that guide behavior and decisions within the school. Shared values such as respect, integrity and responsibility contribute to the formation of students’ character and the development of an ethical educational environment.

The ability to adapt to new teaching methods, technologies and educational trends can contribute to improving the quality of education provided. Retaining and Attracting Talent: A positive organizational culture can help retain and attract quality faculty and staff. A healthy and supportive work environment can be an important factor for education professionals. Parent Involvement: An open and communicative organizational culture can facilitate the involvement of parents in school life. When parents feel an integral part of the school community, the collaboration between school and family becomes more effective.
