A Study of Teacher Burnout at the Junior High School Level.
Rathbone, Charles; Benedict, Chaunce
This qualitative research report focuses on the phenomenon of teacher burnout at the junior high school level. Three teachers were interviewed as to the role teacher burnout played in their professional and personal lives. A jury of peers reviewed the transcriptions of these interviews and categorized interview data into five categories: How was burnout defined? What were the types of burnout reported? What efforts were expended to alleviate its effects? and, What were the symptoms? The results are reported for those factors agreed to by all three members of the jury. The report concludes with observations concerning burnout at the junior high school level, suggested future research possibilities, and action steps public shool personnel (administrators, teachers, students) might undertake to combat its debilitating effects.
