SATISFACTION AND DISSATISFACTION OF TEACHERS. FINAL REPORT.
SERGIOVANNI, THOMAS
JOB SATISFACTION AND JOB DISSATISFACTION FACTORS FOUND IN THE WORK SITUATIONS OF TEACHERS WERE INVESTIGATED. TWO QUESTIONS WERE PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION--(1) IS THERE A SET OF FACTORS WHICH TENDS TO SATISFY TEACHERS AND ANOTHER SET OF FACTORS WHICH TENDS TO DISSATISFY TEACHERS, OR, ARE THE FACTORS ARRANGED ON A CONCEPTUAL CONTINUUM WITH EACH BEING A POTENTIAL SATISFIER AND DISSATISFIER, AND (2) WILL THE DISTRIBUTION OF FACTORS VARY FOR SUBGROUPS OF TEACHERS. THE FINDINGS OF THIS STUDY REVEALED THAT SOME FACTORS, REPORTED BY TEACHERS AS CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR JOB SATISFACTION AND JOB DISSATISFACTION, WERE POLAR IN A POSITIVE DIRECTION AND OTHERS POLAR IN A NEGATIVE DIRECTION. THE SATISFACTION FACTORS TENDED TO FOCUS ON THE WORK ITSELF, AND THE DISSATISFACTION FACTORS TENDED TO FOCUS ON THE CONDITIONS OF WORK. ACHIEVEMENT, RECOGNITION, AND RESPONSIBILITY WERE FACTORS WHICH CONTRIBUTED PREDOMINANTLY TO TEACHER JOB SATISFACTION. INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS (SUBORDINATES), INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS (PEERS), SUPERVISION, SCHOOL POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION, PERSONAL LIFE, STATUS, AND UNFAIRNESS WERE FACTORS WHICH CONTRIBUTED PREDOMINANTLY TO TEACHER DISSATISFACTION. SUBGROUPS OF TEACHERS TENDED NOT TO DIFFER IN THEIR RESPONSES TO SOURCES OF JOB SATISFACTION AND JOB DISSATISFACTION. (TC)
