Chinese Middle School Teacher Job Satisfaction and Its Relationships with Teacher Moving
Chen, Junjun
Asia Pacific Education Review, v11 n3 p263-272 Sep 2010
This study examined teacher job satisfaction in Chinese middle schools from the aspects of school, community, and life and the relationships between these factors and teacher moving. A convenience sample of 294 teachers was approached through a 35-item questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS. Three major results were found: (1) Chinese middle school teachers were dissatisfied with their job in general. (2) Younger, less-experienced, junior teachers were more satisfied. Most groups of teachers were more satisfied with their working conditions, but less satisfied with income. (3) The sub-factors of leadership, professional opportunities, working conditions, and income had significant relationships with teachers' future career planning. The reasons contributing to job dissatisfaction and teacher retention in schools are discussed.
