Mangelndes Prestige der Lehrkräfte in der Gesellschaft ...

„Ein besonders großer Belastungsfaktor dürfte das wahrgenommene, mangelnde Prestige der Lehrkräfte in der Gesellschaft sein, verbunden mit einem Schlechtmachen in den Medien (Stichwort: ‚Lehrerbashing‘) und auch der nicht selten geäußerten Kritik seitens der Politik (Stichwort: ‚Dienstag-Mittag bin ich fertig‘, Wiens ehemaliger Bürgermeister Häupl) bzw. sogenannter Schul- und Bildungsexpertinnen und -experten, denen man oftmals diese Expertise nicht zuschreibt.“

Finnland: Training to become a teacher is among the most popular choices of Finnish university students ...

Finnland: „Training to become a teacher is among the most popular choices of Finnish university students. Many students apply for teacher training, and universities are able to select the most qualified among them in each cohort.“
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Matthias Doepke u. a., „Love, Money and Parenting“ (2019), S. 294

Finnland: Mere 10 to 15 percent of teachers abandon their profession ...

Finnland: „An indicator of the popularity of teaching is that a mere 10 to 15 percent of teachers abandon their profession. The intrinsic satisfaction of Finnish teachers is a gift to taxpayers who receive great value for their money. To attract equally qualified and well-educated people in countries where the teaching profession is less popular would force the government to pay high salaries. Finland’s ability to create attractive working conditions that generate high satisfaction among teachers explains a good deal of their success story.“

The schools system of Finland and Sweden are, in reality, more different than a first impression might suggest ...

„The schools system of Finland and Sweden are, in reality, more different than a first impression might suggest. One difference is that the teaching profession in Sweden does not appear to have the same high social status as in Finland. Swedish teachers report low levels of job satisfaction. In a survey carried out by the Swedish teaching union, almost nine out of ten primary school teachers reported that their workload is too high and administrative tasks eat up too much valuable teaching time. One in three teachers in Sweden report that they 'probably' or 'definitely' will not continue working in schools until they retire. The low status and low satisfaction of teachers also translates into difficulties in recruiting them.“
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Matthias Doepke u. a., „Love, Money and Parenting“ (2019), S. 297

Finland’s success in compulsory schooling ...

„Finland’s success in compulsory schooling is partly because teachers are valued by society and enjoy good working conditions, relatively high salaries, smaller classes and fewer teaching hours than the OECD average. Another feature of Finnish schools is the well-developed system to detect pupils with special needs early and provide timely interventions.“
OECD (Hrsg.), „Investing in Youth: Finland“ (2019), S. 12

Einkommen, Rahmenbedingungen und Wertschätzung ...

„The share of teachers reporting that the financial package and working conditions of the teaching profession were important motivations to them is higher in countries where teachers feel highly valued in society. These countries and economies also are among the top-performing systems in the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).“

Raising the status and prestige of the profession is an overarching goal ...

„Raising the status and prestige of the profession is an overarching goal to attract candidates and ensure the continuous renewal of the teaching profession as teachers retire, but also to retain current teachers in the profession.“

Countries with higher teacher salaries ...

„Countries with higher teacher salaries (relative to GDP) and higher perceptions of the social value of the teaching profession have, on average, larger shares of students who expect to work as teachers.“

How to attract the most talented people into the teaching profession ...

„The complexity and variety of competences required poses a challenge for all national education systems: how to attract the most talented people into the teaching profession and retain them. […] Remuneration is a key element in making teaching an attractive profession. Along with other factors such as working conditions, career prospects, professional development opportunities and recognition, it plays an important role in drawing people into the profession as well as ensuring that serving teachers are satisfied and sufficiently motivated to continue to provide high quality teaching.“

Global Teacher Status Index 2018 bestätigt Global Teacher Status Index 2013 ...

„Our new data suggests that there is a correlation between the status accorded to teachers through the GTSI 2018 (Anm.: Global Teacher Status Index 2018) and student outcomes in their country. In other words, high teacher status is not just a 'nice to have' – increasing teacher status can directly improve the pupil performance of a country’s students. Ministers should take teacher status seriously and make efforts to improve it.“

Status can be a direct contributor to improved pupil performance ...

„Status is not just a nice to have, but something which can be a direct contributor to improved pupil performance – via an increased likelihood of more effective teachers entering the profession and remaining in the profession. Whilst status is already high in some countries, it remains a mid ranked profession in many, and therefore presents a real and present challenge to governments as they seek to improve the capacity of their teaching profession.“

Educational systems perform best when they have teachers who are respected, prepared, selected on merit, and supported in their work ...

„Educational systems perform best when they have teachers who are respected, prepared, selected on merit, and supported in their work. East Asia and Pacific systems provide many lessons for developing such high-performing systems. A foundational aspect is attracting high-quality candidates into the profession by offering not only competitive compensation but also an appealing professional environment founded on respect and support.“

„Die Gehälter der Lehrkräfte […] wirken sich unmittelbar auf die Attraktivitat des Lehrerberufs aus. Sie beeinflussen die Entscheidung, eine Lehrerausbildung aufzunehmen, nach erzieltem Abschluss Lehrkraft zu werden, nach einer Unterbrechung in den Lehrerberuf zurückzukehren und/oder den Lehrerberuf weiterhin auszuüben (im Allgemeinen sinkt mit steigendem Gehalt die Neigung zu einem Berufswechsel).“

Gehälter und alternative Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten wesentliche Faktoren der Attraktivität des Lehrerberufs ...

„Die Bildungssysteme konkurrieren mit anderen Sektoren der Wirtschaft um hoch qualifizierte Absolventen, die sie als Lehrkräfte gewinnen wollen. Forschungsergebnisse zeigen, dass Gehälter und alternative Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten wesentliche Faktoren der Attraktivität des Lehrerberufs sind. Die Anfangsgehälter von Lehrkräften im Verhältnis zu denen von Beschäftigten in anderen nicht lehrenden Tätigkeiten und die zu erwartenden Einkommenssteigerungen haben großen Einfluss darauf, ob sich Absolventen für den Lehrerberuf entscheiden.“

Numerous factors contribute to the attractiveness of the teaching profession ...

„Numerous factors contribute to the attractiveness of the teaching profession, including teacher salaries, working conditions, career progression possibilities and autonomy to influence one’s own work. In parallel, teachers’ perceptions of their profession, such as their job satisfaction, or whether they feel that the profession is valued in their society, reflect this attractiveness.“

„In virtually all of these jurisdictions, positive views of teaching reflected in public surveys and government statements are also reflected in compensation that is competitive with other professions requiring comparable education. In all of the jurisdictions, starting salaries for teachers are above international averages, and all have significant increases within the first 10 years of teaching.“

Teaching is a highly regarded profession in Finland ...

„Teaching is a highly regarded profession in Finland and one of the top occupational choices of young people. Entering salaries are comparable to those of other professions. However, the greater draw appears to be the high esteem with which the profession is held, the desirable working conditions, and the trust that allows teachers to be creative and innovative in their work.“

Teaching in high-performing systems ...

„High-performing systems view teaching as a profession, one that is attractive to enter and remain in and one that offers rewards – intrinsic and extrinsic – to those who excel. In doing so, the systems help ensure that well-qualified individuals go into teaching, thus enhancing the respect for the profession throughout society.“

Test-based accountability is replaced by trust-based responsibility and inspiration for human development.“

„Countries with the most effective education systems, such as Finland and Singapore, tend to have the most selective teacher recruitment policies. In these cases, the teaching profession is considered and treated as a cornerstone of society, acknowledging that teachers enable a country to maximise its future human capital. Only the most talented are encouraged to apply, and there are strict entry criteria based on competence and motivation. This approach is crucial to help boost the status of the profession. Boosting status also requires good pay, good working conditions, a high degree of professional autonomy and high qualification requirements – for all teachers.“
