Eastern Kentucky Teacher and Administrative Stress: Part II

Document Type


Publication Date



The purpose of this research was to do a survey of randomly selected Eastern Kentucky teachers (Elementary, Middle, and High School) to collect data about stress in public schools. The stress data collected from this survey was compared to the stress data collected from a 2010 survey of Eastern Kentucky Principals. This was a continuation study for Eastern Kentucky that collected data on how men and women teachers and men and women administrators handle stress. This study sought to determine if there are differences in how men and women teachers/administrators handle stress at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. In addition, the research considered school size, school financial condition, and age as factors that may influence stress for teachers and administrators. The surveys were mailed to randomly selected Eastern Kentucky Principals that are located in the Morehead State University service area (22 Counties) in the spring of 2011.
