The present comparative study investigates the perceptions of male and female teachers regarding the relationship between empowerment and job satisfaction. The study aims to look at factors that empower teachers and lead to job satisfaction from teachers' perspectives. For that purpose, teachers were selected from three educational levels (primary, middle and secondary) in Al-Farwaniya District in the State of Kuwait. A total of 231 teachers from the Al-Farwaniya School District responded to a questionnaire. Both t-test and one-way ANOVA were applied. Data analysis reveals a lack of job empowerment and a high degree of dissatisfaction among teachers. The study concludes with several suggestions including opening up a dialogue with teachers in order to understand their problems and needs and involving them in the process of decision-making and change.
