School satisfaction among Chinese mainland adolescents
Main Article Content
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.
