Abstract [en]

Head Start preschool teachers are at risk for quitting their employment if they have negative job attitudes. Using a semi-structured interview guide, 20 Head Start preschool teachers were asked about their psychological job attitudes. The analyses indicated that preschool teachers' job attitudes were influenced by the amounts and types of support they received regarding their organizational regulations, workplace relationships, and the structural quality of their classrooms, with preschool teachers requiring the most support from their co-teacher and their center director, as well as for children with behavioral problems, and the time needed to complete their paperwork.
