The latest OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) reveals that more than 90% of teachers love and feel satisfied with their jobs, but very few feel valued by society. The study targeted more than 100 000 lower secondary teachers and school leaders in 34 countries and aimed to find out more about the working conditions and learning environments in schools. The main areas of research in the study are school leadership, teacher training, appraisal and feedback to teachers, teachers’ pedagogical beliefs, attitudes and teaching practices, and teachers’ reported feeling of self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and school and classroom environment.
