Secondary School Newspaper Adviser's Job Satisfaction: A Factor in Press Freedom.
Dvorak, Jack
High school journalism advisers and principals in Missouri responded to questionnaires designed to discover the relationship between job satisfaction for journalism advisers and freedom of expression permitted in the school newspaper. The responses of 88 pairs were used to allow for a study of the adviser/principal relationship as it pertained to the job satisfaction of the adviser. Job satisfaction scores of the advisers were compared with scores on their perception of communication conditions with the principal, the types of news the principal allowed to be printed, the topics allowed, the overall censorship situation, and whether or not the advisers were certified to teach journalism. The job satisfaction scores were then compared to corresponding principals' scores in areas of symbaditic communication and to principals' rankings of their own management styles. The conclusions were that job satisfaction relates significantly to censorship, communication conditions, certification, and symbaditic communication. (TJ)
