Teachers' Attachment to Work.
Pajak, Edward; Blumberg, Arthur
The results of a study measuring the Central Life Interests (CLI) of public school teachers are presented. Elementary and secondary teachers responded to a questionnaire rating their attitudes as being job oriented, nonjob oriented, or as having no preference. Four subscales measured the attachment felt toward the informal social relations among teachers, general affective experiences, attitudes toward formal organization in the schools, and the technical aspects of their jobs. The CLI configuration of the teachers in this sample was found to differ from other occupational groups. The majority were found to be not job oriented in their overall central life interest orientations. (JD)
