Combining Marriage and Career: The Professional Adjustment of Marital Teachers
Rizvi, Afroz Haider
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n7 p140-143 2016
In the paper, the researcher attempted to assess Professional Adjustment status and level of teachers according to their marital status on a sample of 792 teachers. Teachers have been classified into two categories viz. married and unmarried. To evaluate the status of professional adjustment of teachers, a tool viz. "Manual on Teachers Professional Adjustment" was used which was prepared and standardized by the investigator. The reliability and validity of the tool were found 0.89 and 0.66 respectively. On the basis of percentile rank and professional adjustment scores, professional adjustment status of teachers have been classified into three levels viz. well-adjusted, average-adjusted low-adjusted. Analysis of data was done by t-test and ?[superscript 2] test through SPSS version 13.0 and Prism 3.0. This study reveals that there is no significant difference between professional adjustment of married and unmarried teachers. Even, professional adjustment levels of two groups are statistically significant. It clearly shows that marriage is not at all related with the career of teachers.
