Abstract: The major purpose of this study was to determine the sex role preference and job satisfaction of secondary home economics teachers. A further purpose was to identify whether or not there was any relationship between the two variables. It was hypothesized that there would be no relationship between sex role preference and job satisfaction and that demographic characteristics would have no relationship to either of the two main variables. The survey sample included 200 teachers randomly selected from a listing of all of the home economics teachers employed in the North Carolina public schools. Each participant was sent a questionnaire which included the Measure of Sex Role Preference (Scanzoni, 1975), the Job Description Index (Smith, Kendall, & Hulin, 1969), and six questions designed to obtain specific demographic information. One hundred and seventy questionnaires were returned, and 168 contained sufficient data to be included in the analysis.
