Summary

Special education teachers (N=405) were surveyed on the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) to determine the existence of teacher burnout. Ninety-one percent (371) of the respondents were classified as not burned out. Thirty-four (8.4%) were classified as burned out, a lower percentage than for other types of teachers. Findings suggested that possibly one-third to one-half the Ss may be rapidly approaching burnout as measured in terms of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and low feelings of personal accomplishment. Demographic data appeared to be relatively poor predictors of burnout. Seventy-five percent of the teachers knew one to ten or more persons who had dropped out of special education. Symptoms of burnout and suggestions for remediation are included. (CL)
