Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine whether the career barriers that female teachers working in Turkish elementary schools have experienced predict their levels of burnout. The correlation research method was used and multiple regression analysis was conducted on data obtained from 1,076 teachers randomly selected from elementary schools in 7 geographical regions in Turkey. It was found that career barriers resulting from the school and the environment were predictive of emotional exhaustion and level of personal accomplishment, career barriers resulting from societal gender stereotypes were predictive of personal accomplishment, and career barriers resulting from school and environment predicted depersonalization.
