dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research was to determine to what degree the married male educator experiences role conflict. The study was piloted by means of a literature study and thereafter an empirical investigation. The purpose of the literature study was to identify possible causes of role conflict and the empirical study was to determine the degree of role conflict experienced by the respondents. The problem statement and research objectives were formulated in Chapter 1. the objective of the study was formulated and the method of research was discussed. A study population was determined and the chapter is concluded with the chapter division. Chapter 2 concentrated on a few descriptions that are related to the concept "role". The nature of the role of the man was discussed from a judicial perspective. The chapter was concluded with the nature of the man's role in and outside the home. The nature of the role conflict was discussed in Chapter 3. Concepts such as inter role conflict and intra role conflict received attention. Possible factors that contribute to the experience of role conflict in the married male educator were identified from the literature. These factors that lead to experiencing role conflict are divided into three categories, namely in the family, at work, and in the family and at work. The purpose of Chapter 4 was to empirically determine whether the respondents really experience role conflict as a result of the discussed factors and to what degree role conflict is experienced. The research design, questionnaires as research instrument as well as the composition in the questionnaire was discussed in this chapter. The completed questionnaire was empirically analysed and certain interpretations were formulated from it. A summary of all the chapters was done in Chapter 5, findings were formulated and a few recommendations, based on the findings, were made. The findings indicated that role conflict is indeed experienced by the respondents and that the causes that lead to conflict originate in the family, society and the workplace. It was also found that practical meaningful differences exist between certain biographical data of the respondents and single factors that lead to experiencing role conflict. Minimal sing of these factors is a theme that can receive attention in future research.
