The present research study was undertaken to investigate role conflict of secondary school teachers and how it is influenced by teaching experience and change proneness. Descriptive survey method was employed for the present investigation. Incidental sampling technique was used to select the sample of 1048 teachers from eight districts of Himachal Pradesh. Change proneness inventory by M. Mukhopadhyay (2012) and Teacher’s role conflict inventory (TRCI) by Prasad and Bhusan (1991) were used to gather the data. The data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and two way analysis of variance. It was revealed that secondary school teachers with different teaching experience (length of service) possessed nearly similar level of role conflict. Secondary school teachers with high and moderate level of change proneness had shown significantly lesser role conflict as compared to the teachers with low level of change proneness. The correlational analysis revealed that the change proneness and role conflict are significantly and negatively correlated to each other. The educational implications of the study have been discussed in the end of research paper.
