Teacher Satisfaction Research

The nation faces a teacher shortage. Previous research shows dissatisfaction contributes to teacher turnover and discourages today’s students from pursuing teaching careers. Teacher satisfaction matters.

SRF surveyed teachers nationwide about their satisfaction on 14 workplace factors. This infographic and report examines the complex relationship between teacher satisfaction with compensation and other aspects of their professional experiences. The 2385 teachers who responded were least often satisfied with salary and benefits. But it was not just about pay. The data suggest teacher dissatisfaction with salary may be symptomatic of the toll exacted from teachers and students when education is underfunded.
