Özet:The correlation between a democratic school environment and teacher burnout was controlled in this study. The first part of study concerns developing a “Democratic School Environment Scale (DESES)”, and the second, controls correlation between teacher perception about democratic behaviour in school and teacher burnout. The research participants, 150 teachers from Çanakkale, İstanbul and Kayseri, were chosen randomly. The study data was collated by using DESES and “Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI)”. The results reveal that DESES is a valid and reliable measurement tool for determining teacher perception levels of democratic behaviour in their schools. It also reveals a negative correlation between highly perceived democratic behaviour in schools and teacher burnout.
