REALITY OF OCCUPATIONAL BURNOUT IN ‎SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE STATE OF KUWAIT ‎FROM TEACHERS’ PERSPECTIVE

This study aims to identify the reality of occupational burnout in its ‎three dimensions in public education schools, including secondary ‎schools, from the perspective of Kuwaiti school teachers, following the ‎descriptive analytic approach. The study applied the questionnaire to a ‎simple random sample of (425) secondary school teachers in the six ‎educational districts in the State of Kuwait. Using the appropriate ‎statistical tools, the study concluded several results, the most important ‎of which are: (1) the reality of occupational burnout in general was ‎low, as the lack of personal achievement dimension came in the first ‎place, followed by the negative interpersonal relationships dimension, ‎then the emotional exhaustion dimension; (2) There are no statistically ‎significant differences between the arithmetic means of occupational ‎burnout for the educational district and academic qualification ‎variable. However, there are statistically significant differences, ‎attributed to the gender variable, in favor of males. The study ‎recommends that: (A) The administration shall pay attention to the ‎teacher through his participation in decision-making, avoiding ‎centralization through delegation of authority; (B) The administration ‎shall establish a system of material and moral incentives for ‎encouragement; (C) The administration shall distribute administrative ‎tasks in a way that reduces the burden on the teacher; and (D) The ‎administration shall set times for meeting with teachers to solve ‎problems and conflicts that occur between them, and make further ‎efforts to repair relationships.
