Open Access Graduate Research Paper
If the totality of satisfactions that an employee obtains from the different aspects of his work situation were not enough to cause him to invest the extra energy occasionally required to get to the job, the employee would be absent from work (Metzner and Mann, 1953). This observation dealt with factors relating to motivating a teacher to go to work. Wh11e this observation is not always applicable, it is an example of a real situation that contributes toward the problem of teacher absenteeism. Teacher absenteeism 1s not a new problem and has been the focus of a great deal of research (Manlove and Elliott, 1979; Lewis, 1981; Pitkoff, 1981; Elliott, 1982; Hill, 1982).
