Prof. (Dr.) Madhu Gupta, Sunita Kumari


The aim of this study was to investigate the role conflict on the basis of job satisfaction and gender among secondary school teachers. Role conflict was treated as dependent variable whereas job satisfaction (high job satisfaction and low job satisfaction) and gender (male and female) were treated as independent variables. Descriptive survey method was employed for the present study.  350 teachers were selected as a sample by using multi-stage random sampling technique. Teachers Role Conflict Scale by Gupta and Nain (2016) and Teachers Job Satisfaction Questionnaire by Kumar and Mutha (2017) were used to collect the data. Two-Way ANOVA with 2x2 factorial design was used to analyze the data. Levene’s Test of Homogeneity of Variance was also applied to test the assumptions of homogeneity of variance for ANOVA. There was found a significant main effect of job satisfaction; and gender on role conflict of secondary school teachers. A significant interaction effect of job satisfaction and gender was reported on role conflict of secondary school teachers. The findings of the present study suggested that the employers and administrators should supervise the institutions in such a way to keep the level of role conflict among teachers at minimum so that maximum productivity and effectiveness can be obtained from the teachers.
