In this study it is aimed to determine the opinions about values education of teachers who works at secondary education institutions. In the study 31 teachers who work in secondary education institutions in different cities are interviewed by using semi-structured interview form. The obtained datum is analyzed by descriptive analysis. In general, the results are obtained that there isn’t sufficient briefing in schools for teachers about values education, the teachers find the values education insufficient in the schools, values education curriculum should be improved and practiced, all the teachers should run the values education together, there should be a specific values education lesson and all the teachers should be a model for the students with their behaviors. Besides, it is determined that there are problems about values education because teachers, students and parents do not attach sufficient importance to values education. In addition to this, as a solution suggestion, giving lectures about values education to trainers and families comes into prominence.
