A Letter from Fatih Bogrek of the University of Arkansas


Dear Educator,


Research reveals that teachers constitute the most influential factor on student learning. Arkansas educator, Fatih Bogrek, is currently engaged in a doctoral dissertation study under the direction of the faculty advisor Dr. Ibrahim Duyar (Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Arkansas at Little Rock). The purpose of the study is to examine the determinants and outcomes of teachers’ professional identity and organizational identification. To help gain further insights, we kindly request your participation to this survey which would take no more than 20 minutes.
