A comparative study of occupational Stress between subject teachers and physical education teachers of Goa
AUTHOR(S): Elroy Pinto
The purpose of this study was to compare the Occupational Stress between Physical Education Teachers and Subject Teachers. For the purpose of this study a total of 80 subjects (N=80) were chosen, Physical Education Teachers (n=40) and Subject teachers (n=40). The subjects were chosen using Quota sampling technique. Occupational Stress was measured using Occupational Stress Index (OSI) by Srivastava & Singh (1984) which consisted of 46 questions. Independent sample ‘t’ test was used to compare the Occupational Stress between Physical Education Teachers and Subject Teachers. The results showed that there is no significant difference between Physical Education Teachers and Subject Teachers in terms of Occupational stress. The higher Occupational stress of Physical Education Teachers compared to Subject Teachers can be attributed to the pressure, lack of respect, over load and lack of facilities that the physical education teachers receive at their work place.
