Work Adjustment of Vocational Education Teachers.
Muncrief, Martha Crawford
To investigate work adjustment of vocational education teachers, a nation-wide study was conducted focusing on vocational needs, job satisfaction, and job success. The study involved 180 secondary teachers from three vocational areas, business, home economics, and industrial education. A multistage sampling process was utilized to select participants. Findings and conclusions included: (1) Women teachers with more years in present teaching positions, and more years of experience were basically in the high work adjustment group, (2) Scale values for vocational needs of teachers covered a greater range than did scale values in occupation reinforcer patterns, (3) Job satisfaction and job success cannot be conceived of as dimensions of work adjustment, but rather independent outcomes of the vocational adjustment process, and (4) Scores of this sample of teachers were negatively skewed in relation to job satisfaction, indicating that perhaps few people were really dissatisfied with their jobs. Tables, sample survey instruments, and a bibliography are appended. (SN)
