Relationship of Selected Demographic Characteristics and the Job Satisfaction of Industrial Arts Teachers.
Lee, Raphel D. C.
The study investigated the possible influence of selected personal and background demographic variables on job satisfaction among industrial arts teachers and the relationships between job satisfaction and a job content-context dichotomy for the job factors. Data were collected through mailed questionnaires to a 50 percent sample of industrial arts teachers in Missouri secondary schools during 1971-72. Findings revealed that the demographic variables contributed little to the variance in job factor satisfaction. However, there were statistically significant relations between overall job satisfaction and job content-context factor satisfaction measures. The finding that the job content-related factors, such as work itself, were relatively more important in job factor satisfaction than the job context-related factors, such as salary, has implications for industrial arts teacher job design.
