Author(s): Dr. Pardeep Singh Dehal, Rakesh Kumar
Abstract: The teacher is custodian and architect of a nation. The future of our country is in the hands of a teacher. He plays an important role in upholding the cultural traditions, ideals and values of our society. The whole system of education depends upon the quality, competency, devotion and character of the teachers. They are the pillars of society responsible for educating young people of different walks of life. The statement that no system of education can raise the level of its teachers, that no programme of educational reforms can be implemented without the willing and active co-operation of teachers holds true. Teacher should have a sense of job involvement. Job involvement is a significant job related behaviour. It shows the degree to which an individual is personally involved with his job. If the teachers are highly involved towards their job, they can produce good results in their professional life. This paper is aimed at investigating the job involvement of college teachers in their job. A sample of 546 teachers both male and female was drawn from 36 degree colleges of Himachal Pradesh. The data was collected using job involvement scale by Dhar & Srivastava. Mean, SD and t-test were employed for analysis of data. The result revealed that male, teachers are more involved in their job than female teachers. The study indicates that Govt. teachers are more involved in their job. There is more job involvement in Govt. teachers than private college teachers. It is also observed that teachers belonging to rural areas are more involved in their job than those of urban areas. Lastly it is also observed that 39% of teachers have high level of job involvement, 41.6 moderate and 19.4% have low job involvement.
