Teacher job satisfaction plummets

According to a recent survey by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership, job satisfaction among teachers has dropped to 63%.

In 2017, job satisfaction for educators was sitting at 91%.

In addition, 80% of educators now feel their work-life-balance is either “less or non-existent”. As a direct consequence, many teachers are now leaving the profession.

Mark Grant, CEO for the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership, said Australia’s education system is caught in the crosshairs of a competing crisis.

“Australian teachers are feeling the impact of two years of COVID-related stress, the demands of remote teaching and teacher shortages, and it’s all putting a strain on the profession,” he said.
