This research adds to the knowledge of how teachers within a post communist transitional country, Romania, perceive democratic principles within their schools. Through the use of a nonlinear theoretical model and grounded theory techniques, teacher perceptions were categorized and theory was developed directly from the data. Six face-to-face, taped interviews were conducted through the coordination of a key informant in the Banat region of Romania where the December 1989 revolution began. Teachers generally perceive themselves as limited participants in decision making and as part of a larger society that has yet to reach beyond the confines of the communist past. This study gives voice to teachers at the local level in Romania concerning remedies to this challenging educational situation.
