Abstract

This study examines the relationship between personal, occupational and work environment characteristics and burnout in 188 physical education teachers in the Tel-Aviv area in Israel. The teachers responded to questionnaires composed of three parts: a) Personal and occupational variables, such as age, sex, level of education, workload and administrative duties. b) Work environment dimensions including structural, organizational-bureaucratic, psychological and social dimensions. c) Burnout scale statistical analysis including descriptive statistics, bivariate correlations, factor analysis and regression analysis of all personal and work environment variables on teacher burnout. Burnout levels of Israeli physical education teachers were found lower than those of academic teachers in Israel and the U.S.A., and similar to those of physical education teachers in a sample of six states in the U.S.A. None of the personal and occupational variables was found to affect burnout. However, three out of 15 factors describing work environment affected physical education teacher burnout: low salary, bureaucratic limitations and social and role limitations. These factors include items which may be common to physical education teachers and other teachers, such as low salary and too much paper work. However they also point to some items which are specific to physical education teachers, e.g., a feeling of social isolation within school, contradictory demands by school and administration, lack of diverse roles and diverse equipment in school, and lack of opportunity for occupational self-development.
