Burnout among para-teachers in India
The concept of burnout is seen in almost all the profession such as-managerial work, nursing, teaching etc. This paper focused on the burnout study of para-teachers’ in India. Para-teachers were untrained, less paid and employed up to secondary school on contractual basis. Government is silently promoting them as ‘Money Saving Approach’ in current education system. Para-teachers agitation throughout the country indicated towards the serious psycho-social problems among teachers community. Hence, the attempt is to present the cross sectional study of the sample of 100 Para-teachers from Jharkhand (India). To measure the Burnout level among para-teachers, Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) Educational Survey was used as a tool. Apart from the three constituents of burnout like Emotional exhaustion, Depersonalization, reduced Personal Accomplishment, another three variables like the low Self Efficacy, Environmental factors and Job dissatisfaction were taken as additional scales. It explored the different causal factors for burnout to study the problems in Indian context. The correlation matrix and the general to specific modeling of multiple regressions analysis showed that gender, teaching experiences, student populations and financial insecurity were significantly contributing to burnout. Thus the background for burnout has been created by economical, social and psychological aspects among para-teachers.
