abstract
The aim of this research is to gain understanding about school culture characteristics of primary schools in the Flemish and Chinese context. The study was carried out in Flanders (Belgium) and China involving a total of 44 Flemish schools and 40 Chinese schools. The School Culture Scales were used to measure five school culture dimensions with regard to goal orientation, leadership, innovation orientation, participative decision making and formal relationships. The School Culture Scales were validated in both contexts and within-group agreement indexes were calculated. The results show that in average, the Flemish schools scored higher in four dimensions of the school culture features than the Chinese schools. Within group differences were also found. The differences between and among the Chinese and Flemish schools were discussed
