Abstract

Background

The COVID-19 pandemic brought extraordinary disruption to the education landscape, with schools and campuses closing everywhere seemingly overnight. The speed with which faculty were making the (forced) shift to remote teaching was astounding and unparalleled and complicated by the fact that such “emergency remote teaching” in response to a crisis bears little resemblance to deliberately designed online teaching and learning. It has enforced the concept 'Work from Home' (WFH) into an officially mandated, strictly enforced rule. Now, the WFH concept is emerging from all sectors, from teaching sectors to several other sectors. This new concept of WFH forced almost all the employees of all the sectors to work from home for the first time. In this research, researchers investigate the opinions and challenges of school teachers on work from home and also find out how working from home is crucial.

Material and Methods

This was a cross sectional survey. Sample consisted of 50 school teachers from pre-school to high selected by convenient sampling technique. Tools consisted of socio- demographic profile and self-structured questionnaire. Data were collected using web-based survey. Questionnaires complete in all aspects were received by researchers by mail after a week. Analysis was done by using SPSS 20.

Result

Mean opinion score was 53.86 ± 6.97 which falls in the category of positive opinion. It means, overall, the subjects had a positive opinion regarding work from home. Mean score of challenges was 5.30 ± 1.741, which falls in the category of moderate challenges. It depicts that overall subjects considered work from home during COVID-19 a moderately challenging job.

Conclusion

Teachers had positive opinion on work from home, although, they consider work from home a moderately challenging job. Thus, with the assistance of school authorities work from home can become a highly satisfying job for the teachers.
