Abstract
China's private schools have seen problems with the instability of teachers and low job satisfaction, it is necessary to study private schools job satisfaction and its causing factors. Furthermore, there has been little research studying job satisfaction gaps among different types of private schools, as private school teachers may face more teaching and work environment issues. In this paper, we use the PISA (2015) data samples from four provinces and cities in China, employing T test and structural equation model. We find that the job satisfaction of teachers in inclusive private school is significantly lower than that of public school, magnet private school, and OECD countries private school. The school processes, particularly career and working conditions, principal management support, and teacher collaboration, are positively associated with teacher job satisfaction. The author also found there are significant gaps in resource levels among private schools. Base on the findings, we discussed the possible reasons for the lower levels of teacher satisfaction in inclusive private schools. We conclude that the gap in resource constraints and working conditions has led to low satisfaction among teachers in inclusive private schools.
