The aim of my study is to find out Kazakhstani teachers’ burnout causes, explore its impact on teachers’ turnover intentions and study teacher burnout prevention measures for improvement of teacher retention.
A case study design with a mixed method approach was used to understand the issue in depth. The autonomous school in the western area of Kazakhstan was chosen. A Questionnaire and semi-structured interview were used and developed in three languages as the researcher aimed for each interviewee to feel comfortable.
“Teacher Burnout Measure” was (Richmond, Wrench and Gorham, 2001, p.211) employed to find out the burnout level of surveyed teachers. Teachers were selected for the interview based on the numbers of “agree” in the “teacher burnout measure”. Teachers were considered as having signs of burnout in the case when they have at least five “strongly agree” or “agree”. For the interview analysis “constant comparative method” was used. “Respondent validation” effort was also made (Bush,2002) to ensure accuracy of interview notes.
The findings of the survey reveal that the main causes of teacher burnout are overload and increased paperwork. Although many teachers in this study have demonstrated turnover intentions in the near future, the numbers of teachers with signs of burnout are few. Data obtained from interviews demonstrate that teachers attribute the problems connected with overload to school administration’s poor management skills. From the perspectives of surveyed teachers, decreased paperwork, more professional development opportunities and appreciation of work more frequently could impact their decision to remain positively.
