    • Authors: Dilek Yaliz, Sahba Kamali
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the levels of self-esteem of pre-service teachers studying in the physical education and sports teaching department in Turkey and Iran. 80 Turkish and 111 Iranian students constituted the participant group of the study designed using the cross-cultural comparative research method. The Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory, the validity and reliability studies of which were conducted in both countries, was used as a data collection tool in the study. Two-way analysis of variance (was used to analyze the data. When pre-service teachers' self-esteem scores were analyzed, it was observed that pre-service teachers both in Turkey and in Iran were above the moderate level. However, in terms of mean self-esteem scores, although it appeared that the mean scores of preservice teachers in Turkey were higher than the mean scores of pre-service teachers in Iran, it can be said that pre-service teachers' levels of self-esteem did not differ according to the culture they live in, in other words, they were at similar levels. According to the results of the study, it was determined that self-esteem scores were not significantly different according to both gender, grade level, perceived level of academic achievement and culture variables.

These emotional disorders or behaviours need immediate identification by parents, teachers and peers to avoid an effect on their academic performance. Using phenomenological research approach, the study gathered perceptions of teachers, parents and students through three focused group discussions. The data were analysed through thematic analysis techniques. The findings show that there is a relationship between adolescents’ emotions and their academic wellbeing.

    • Authors: Ashraf Bhutto, Irfan Ahmed Rind
      Abstract: This study explores the influence of external examination on teaching and learning of Mathematics at the secondary schools affiliated with provincial and private examination boards in Pakistan. By employing the explanatory sequential mixed-method approach, this study was conducted in two phases. In the first phase, the Mathematics examination papers of last five years from both provincial and private examination boards were reviewed and analyzed to understand (1) the cognitive complexities required from the learners to solve the questions, (2) the frequency and variety in which the questions were repeated and (3) the chapters of prescribed books from which the questions are selected in the examination of last five years.  In the second phase, semi-structured interviews with teachers and students were conducted, along with participatory observation to understand how the examination patterns shape their teaching and learning. The findings revealed that the external examination directly influences teachers’ teaching, and indirectly students’ learning. Both the positive and negative effects of the external examination were found on the teaching and learning strategies of teachers and students, respectively.

  • Perceptions of Organizational Politics among Public Sector University

    • Authors: Muhammad Asif Khan, Nasreen Hussain
      Abstract: The fact that politics exist in Pakistani associations is true for the education sector too. This research distinguished whether maintaining, moving higher in a brief time frame, in the hierarchy of a higher education institution, is through belongingness or is it through labour and capability. This study investigated the existence of politics among the teachers of public sector higher education institutions and is structured around the Perceptions of Organizational Politics (PoPs) developed by Kacmar and Carlson (1997). The data was collected in two phases: the first phase included the collection of quantitative data from 367 university faculty and in the second phase 15 university Deans/ HoDs were interviewed for triangulation. The data collected was analyzed using SPSSv-22.0. The results of the research established that politics exists at the university level and that seats of learning are not exempted from the evil of politics; teachers act the same way as workers in any other organization. The research likewise brought to the fore a solid relationship between workers' apparent contentment with regards to pay and advancement and organizations' compensation and advancement guidelines.

    • Authors: Shelina Bhamani, Muhammad Talha Rehman, Marion Sturges
      Abstract: Covid-19 presented several challenges to the global infrastructure and it has certainly changed systems in almost every walk of life. Recovery will most likely create a new normal and the aftermath of the pandemic will change us as a species (Gleiser, 2020). Many commentators believe that the pandemic has offered humankind a chance to rethink its ways of life. Uncertainty could catalyze positive action. Responsibility, among various other values, is being revisited because simple actions like shaking hands, not wearing masks, and crowding at community gatherings could expose all individuals to risk.
