Abstract

Special school teachers are vulnerable to burnout, but research of burnout on this profession has not revealed much. The purpose of this study is to investigates the burnout of special school teachers and to analyze related factors. Cross-sectional studies were conducted on 90 teachers in the city of Samarinda. Determining sample size using Slovin’s formula, data were assessed using the Maslach burnout inventory, a depression anxiety stress scale, and the Tennessee self-concept scale. Data analysis used chi-square and Pearson correlation. All of the teachers had experienced burnout (26.7% low level and 73.3% medium level). Marital status (p=0.034), working experience (p=0.023), hours of teaching (p=0.044), self-concept (p=0.010) and job stress (p=0.004) correlated significantly with burnout. It was concluded that burnout amongst special school teachers requires immediate treatment. The school is advised to reduce the teacher’s workload, make efforts to improve teacher self-concept and provide training for beginner teachers on educating students with special needs. For further research, it is advisable to further explore the factors causing job stress on the teacher so that the appropriate alternative can be found.
