Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A qualitative study of teacher job satisfaction in an evolutionary and mandated change environment
by Crozier, Craig F., Ed.D., University of Phoenix, 2012, 145; 3514598
Abstract (Summary)

The art of teaching is a demanding process, and places multiple restraints on the teacher’s ability to successfully meet the needs of students, administrators, parents, and the surrounding community (Robinson & Buly, 2007). The study explored the perceptions, ideas, and lived experiences of 20 California public school teachers on job satisfaction based on the surrounding evolutionary and mandated change environment. Participants responded to interview questions developed to answer the study research questions. Participants offered positive solutions and constructive criticism to address lack of job satisfaction, such as more administrative support, curriculum changes, and the importance of student/teacher interaction. Participants offered concrete reasons why teachers job satisfaction was low and how change factors affected their level of job satisfaction.
