Abstract

The changes taking place in the landscape of the educational environment have demanded the key human resources serving in the school, namely teachers, to implement an efficient response and best practices in all aspects to achieve a balance with a dynamic environment. Efficient responses can only be carried out through the continuous learning process carried out by human sources. This study aims to identify the variation in perceptions regarding workgroups on implementing the practice of learning organizations in school organizations. This study uses a quantitative design and a survey study involving questionnaires developed based on the Learning Organization Practices Profile Model. Questionnaires were distributed to 500 respondents consisting of teachers serving in thirteen secondary schools located in Melaka Tengah, Melaka. The sample of this study was selected using cluster and simple random sampling. The data of this study were analyzed using descriptive statistics involving the mean calculation and inferential statistics involving T-test analysis. The findings of this study showed that the administrator working group recorded higher mean readings for all aspects of the implementation of learning organization practices and the implementation of learning organization practices as a whole compared to the teacher working group. The T-Test analysis showed significant differences in the perceptions between the working groups on the three aspects of the learning organization and the implementation of learning organization practices as a whole. This study contributes to empirical data that measure the stages of implementing the practice of learning organizations in school organizations and examines the variation in perceptions between administrators and teachers. Further studies involving comparisons of different types of schools are reserved for looking at the stage of implementing the overall practice of the learning organization
