||Mental health, job satisfaction and occupational stress among UK teachers
||July-Sep. 1993, Vol.7, No.3, p.203-219. 28 ref.
||The findings of a large-scale nationwide investigation into stress among teachers in the UK are presented. Data were collected by questionnaire from a random sample of 1790 teachers drawn from a cross-section of school types, sectors and teaching grades. Univariate analysis of the results revealed that teachers, when compared with other highly stressed occupational groups, experience lower job satisfaction and poorer mental health. Mental ill-health was predicted by a variety of job pressure and personal factors, but predominantly linked to job pressure from 'ambiguity of the teacher's role'. Intention to leave was found to be most highly related to mental ill-health in teachers.
