Abstract: The primary goal of this article is to compare the adjustment of government and private secondary school teachers. The stratified random sampling technique was used to pick a sample of 100 secondary school teachers from different schools of Bokaro town. Fifty teachers were government school (male and female) and fifty were private school (male and female). Dr. S.K. Mangal Teacher Adjustment Inventory (MTAI short form) was utilised to collect data. The data was analysed using the mean, standard deviation, and t-test. According to the study, private secondary school teachers have much better adjustment than their government colleagues. Female school teachers have better adjustment than male teachers.
