Resilience In Relation To Job Performance among the Functionaries of SSA at Elementary Level in Puducherry

R. Diane Joseph, N. Johnson


The main objective of the SSA is to promote Universalisation of Elementary Education. Government of India brought out its New Education Policy (1986) and the subsequent Plan of Action (1992) with the aim to increase allocations for education and thus, better educational outcomes. Resilience is the stress coping ability among individuals that allows the person to utilize both internal and external resources to tackle adversity situation in life. The performance of the Block resource teachers and cluster resource teachers was identified using a job performance survey constructed by the researcher. The survey form consists of 20 statements related to performance of daily tasks, time management, work motivation and work involvement. By getting permission from the school education, the data was collected from the 40 elementary school teachers involved in SSA activities, BRTs and CRTs. The teachers were given proper instruction and adequate time was given to give their opinion on statements in the tool. The personal data pertaining to the background variables were also collected from them.
