An Analysis of Factors that Affect Job Satisfaction of Public High School Business Teachers in Ohio.
Lacy, Annell
The purposes of this study were (1) to determine whether selected factors affect the job satisfaction of business teachers in public high schools in Ohio, and (2) to determine whether teachers in Ohio's block-time programs are more satisfied with their jobs than teachers in traditional business education programs. To gather needed data, a three-part questionnaire was developed and sent to a sample of Ohio business education teachers. Part I of the questionnaire incorporated nine questions which sought to determine general job satisfaction. Part II contained 40 questions aimed at teachers' attitudes toward their schools and communities, and personal factors that relate to job satisfaction. Part III included 20 questions pertaining to factual data about the teachers, their schools, and the communities in which they live and teach. Based on analysis of the data, selected conclusions were: (1) The community affects teacher job satisfaction, (2) Fringe benefits are important, (3) School administrators affect teacher job satisfaction, and (4) Teacher job satisfaction is Affected by salary. A major recommendation is that teacher educators should provide time in the business education curriculum for human relation courses. (Author/JS)
