Comparative Career Orientations of Beginning Male Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and English Teachers.
Jones, Richard John
The purpose of this paper was to discover if certain personal and social factors are related to selected career pattern features of male teachers in specified subject areas. The population of the study included 1212 male beginning teachers certified to teach mathematics, science, social studies, or English. Questionnaires were mailed to each. A total of 713 participants responded. Besides personal data and subject specialization, information related to career alternatives, factors involved in selection of first teaching assignment, and alternatives for further study beyond the bachelor's degree was sought. Data were dichotomized, with mathematics and science (MS) teachers composing one group and social studies and English (SSE) teachers composing the other. MS and SSE teachers, regardless of employment status, placed relatively high and almost equal priority on being located close to a college or university in selecting their first position. No significant differences were found concerning expectancy to pursue careers as classroom teachers or eventually seek positions at a college or university. (Author/EB)
