The main purpose of this study is to ascertain the opinions of the school principals on their assignment as enquirers. It adopted multiple case-holistic design of the qualitative research methods. The sampling was created through criterion sampling technique of the purposive sampling methods. The study group consisted of 10 school principals working in the state schools in Kemer, Antalya. The data were collected by using the semi-structured interview form developed by the researcher and analysed via the content analysis technique. The findings of the study showed that the school principals were not willing to be appointed as enquirers and considered this duty as a burden and drudgery. It was also found that they wanted to be charged since they were not paid for their services and did not regard themselves as sufficient in terms of technical and conceptual knowledge in their duty as enquirers.
