Universal Journal of Educational Research, v5 n2 p228-237 2017
The aim of this study is to detect the perceptions of public primary school teachers regarding organizational alienation behaviors in terms of some variables (gender, marital status and seniority). Survey model was used in this study. The research sample consists of randomly selected 346 teachers from 40 schools in the central district of Mardin, Turkey in 2015-2016 academic year. "Organizational Alienation Scale" developed by Eryilmaz (2010) was applied to the teachers. The level of significance was 0.05. Some of the important findings were listed respectively: I: the three items with the highest levels related to the perceptions of public primary school teachers about organizational alienation behaviors: (1) I feel burnout and worn at work (M= 2.53, Rarely); (2) I think bureaucratic process at school impels me to obey unconditionally (M = 2,51; Rarely); (3) As soon as I finish my lessons, I want to leave the school (M = 2,45; Rarely). The three items with the lowest levels: (1) I think teaching is a useless activity (M = 1.27, Never); (2) I feel excluded at school (M = 1,30; Never); and (3) I evaluate myself as an individual without a contribution to the society (M = 1,31; Never). II: Significant difference was detected in all dimensions except in "self-alienation" with respect to the teachers' gender. No significant difference was detected in the dimensions of organizational alienation behaviors regarding teachers' marital status. Finally, significant difference was detected in the dimension of "powerlessness" and "meaninglessness" regarding professional seniority.
