The aim of this research is to compare the trust levels of the teachers carrying out their duties in public and private primary schools. There is a great difference between public and private schools in terms of the selection of the personnel and students, payment and policy making. Therefore, determining whether these differences cause changes at organizational trust levels in public and private schools has been viewed as an important research question. The Omnibus T Scale developed by Hoy and Tschannen-Moran (2003) was used as data collection instrument. The questionnaire has been applied to 750 teachers, of whom 630 work in the public school and 120 teachers work in private primary schools in Ankara province in Turkey. The survey model has been used in the research. In statistical analysis of the research data, two way analysis of variance and t-test have been used. As a result of the study, it has been found that combined effect of school type and gender was statistically significant. Accordingly, the level of trust of the female teachers working in public schools was lower than that of both male and female teachers working in private schools. Also, the level of trust of the male teachers working at public schools was lower than that of those working at private schools. It was found that the combined effect of school type and seniority was not statistically significant. These results highlight the fact that the trust levels of teachers working at public schools should be enhanced.
