Author(s): Didem OZTURK CIFTCI, Erdal MERIC, Ayse MERIC

The aim of this research is to study the relation among the organizational silence, burnout and intention to leave job within the teachers employed at the special education and rehabilitation centres under the Ministry of Education. The research population consists of a total number of 174 teachers working at 18 special education and rehabilitation centres in the province of Ordu and its counties. In the research, “Organizational Silence Scale for Teachers” has been used to define the teachers’ degree of organizational silence, “Maslach Burnout Inventory” has been used to determine their level of burnout; and “Intention to Leave Job Scale” has been used to define the extent of the of teachers’ intention to leave job. At the end of the research it was detected that none of the demographical data creates a meaningful difference on the degree of organizational silence. On the other hand, it was established that there is meaningful difference in the level of burnout in terms of the variables of gender, age, education and income and, also, in the intention to leave job as far as the variables of gender, age and education are concerned. In the study no meaningful relation between organizational silence and burnout, or organizational silence and the intention to leave job has been found while a meaningful and positive correlation has been detected between burnout and the intention to leave job. As a result of the regression analysis carried out, it was concluded that teachers’ intention to leave job is caused by burnout on a rate of 28%.
