According to Time Magazine, special education teachers are pretty happy with their jobs.
When you roll over the lines in their interactive display you find that 52.6% of them say that they are “very happy” in their work. That’s pretty high on the scale which starts with clergy (67.2%) and ends with gas station attendants (13.2%).
Slightly less than half the teachers as a whole are satisfied with their jobs, which still puts us in the upper 10%.
Oddly, the job satisfaction of librarians comes out at the bottom of the clergy and education group (which is itself an odd classification) with only 25.2% saying they’re very happy.
Now, I’m always suspicious of these surveys since there are a huge number of factors that come into play when you ask anyone about their “happiness”, especially when it comes to their job.
But what is it with you grumpy librarians? :-)
