School satisfaction among Chinese mainland adolescents
Abstract:The major goals in this exploratory study were to investigate the absolute levels of school satisfaction, and clarify the relationship between school satisfaction and gender/grade among Chinese mainland adolescents. Participants were 1,339 middle school students from grades 7, 8, 10, and 11 who completed the Adolescents' School Satisfaction Scale, a subscale of the Adolescents' School Well-being Scale (Tian, 2008). Results show that the highest school satisfaction domains are peer relationship and teacher-student relationship and that male and female students and students from different grades report different levels of school satisfaction. Implications for future research and educational practices are discussed.
