An Empirical Study of Entrepreneurial Qualities Shown by Teaching Fraternity in India during COVID-19 Lockdown
Abstract: The purpose of this research is to highlight the challenges that teachers faced during COVID lockdown in the academic years 2020-2021 and 2021-22, explain how they coped with them, and assess if their solutions aligned with the description of entrepreneurial qualities. The phenomenology pattern was utilized as the research approach in the qualitative study. The sample comprises of 20 teachers who work in private schools in five Indian states throughout the academic years 2020-2021 and 2021-22. (Delhi, Uttrakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Karnataka). Workload, lack of expertise, and a lack of digital infrastructure for teachers, as well as teacher autonomy and compensation deductions, were all investigated in the study. These were found to be consistent across all samples, and they also discussed difficulties that their colleagues were facing. Teachers have stated that these withdrawals are not just made at peak COVID lockdown, but that they are also made today, and that they are in serious financial trouble. Except for a few teachers, the study revealed that most teachers lacked the ability to take risks in order to address problems in novel ways. As a result, instructors must learn how to be more entrepreneurial.
