The goal of the study was to locate factors related to burnout syndrome in teachers of two formal private and public educational institutions from Cali, Colombia. The syndrome’s dimensions (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and reduced sense of personal accomplishment) and their relation to organizational factors, the stress of the role and socio-demographic characteristics of the teachers were described. The Modified Burnout in teachers Questionnaire [CBP-M] was applied to a sample of 82 teachers from one public and one private school. Results show a low level of burnout syndrome in both institutions. An association with the levels of stress of role and organizational factors such as supervision, job conditions and professional worries was found. The socio-demographic characteristics did not show significant relations with the syndrome, with the exception of the level of education in which the teachers give classes
