How Do Principals and Teachers in Special Schools in Turkey Rate Themselves on Levels of Burnout, Job Satisfaction, and Locus of Control?
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v51 n2 p172-192 Sum 2005
This study explores issues of burnout, job satisfaction, and locus of control among special school principals and teachers in Turkey. The purpose of the study was to determine whether there are differences between principals and teachers in terms of work status, sex, and work experiences. A quantitative approach was used: 295 participants (33 special school principals and 262 teachers) were selected and responded to the survey. The Job Satisfaction Scale (JSS) and the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) were used to measure job satisfaction and burnout levels in terms of dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. The Internal-External Locus of Control Scale was used to measure the extent of participants' internal or external locus of control. Results are reported in detail in the body of the article.
