Abstract

This survey research was conducted at twenty secondary schools in Zone A and Zone B, Kuching, Sarawak. The main objective of the study is to find out workload given to English Teachers and problems faced by the teachers in performing their official duties and non-official duties. Other than that, this study is to investigate problems faced by English teachers in managing their official and non-official duties, their preferences in accomplishing their tasks and also to find out as to whether there is any relationship between teaching experience and work manageability. Two hundreds English teachers whom were teaching at Zone A and Zone B schools in Kuching City, Sarawak participated in the survey. The questionnaire was self developed to suit the objectives of the study. The descriptive, statistical analysis results showed that all of the respondents are subject teachers and 52.0% of them are discipline teachers. In terms of extra-curricular activities, 51 % of the respondents are teacher in-charged of uniform bodies. A total of 65.3% respondents are class teachers. About 44.6% are given the task of teacher-in charged of textbooks. As a conclusion, the figure is rather alarming as English teachers are given a lot of clerical duties. The one-way ANOV A (sig=O.35) shows that there is no significant relationship between teaching experience and work manageability. This means that teachers' experience had no effect on how well they manage their work. Findings from this study should be valuable to the Ministry of Education in Malaysia, curriculum specialists and educators as it provides an insight to the real situation of the how English teachers' manage their official and non-official duties.
