A Study on the Relationship between Mobbing and Professional Burn out Perceptions of Secondary School Mathematics Teachers
This study aims to evaluate the relationship between mobbing perception and job burnout of secondary school mathematics teachers. Another subject of the study is to find out whether mobbing and burnout perception differs according togender, marital status, teachers’ professional experience, educational background, staff position, and school type variables. The demographical information form developed by the researchers, Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey, developed by Maslach and Jackson (1981),and Mobbing Scale developed by Cemaloğlu and Ertürk (2007) were used as data collection tools. The study was conducted using the survey method. The study participants included 243 mathematics teachers working in public and private secondary schools in a city centre of a province in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey. Although the study findings of burnout perceptions of mathematics teachers do not differ significantly according to the variables of gender, and educational background, they differ according to the variables of marital status, professional experience, staff position, and school type. Mobbing perceptions of mathematics teachers differ according to sub-levels of all variables but the variable of gender and staff position. In addition, a significant relationship has been identified between the mobbing and burnout perceptions of secondary school mathematics teachers. In addition, it has been determined that mathematics teachers’ mobbing perceptions are significant predictors of burnout perceptions.
