With this aspect in mind, the current study is conducted to major the job satisfaction levels of teachers, working at state and private schools in İstanbul.

A total of three hundred teachers enrol into the research and according to the results the teachers at state schools have a higher job satisfaction than the ones working at private schools in term of some issues such as the ability to self-study, to perform different activities, having a better job security as well as better working conditions.
