Abstract

This study investigates satisfaction with the Teaching Profession Law (TPL), evaluation of the current situation, and expectations in line with the opinions and thoughts of teachers and administrators. The study was designed in a sequential explanatory design, which is a mixed design. Quantitative data were collected from 241 educators through a 12-item survey by the researchers. Then, qualitative data were collected by conducting interviews with 12 participants through a semi-structured form. The Pareto technique was used in the analysis of quantitative data in the research, and content analysis was used in qualitative data. According to the results obtained in line with the quantitative data of the research, it was found that the career ladder application was not appropriate and the law did not increase teacher welfare and motivation to work. It has also been disappointing after the law came into force. In line with the findings that emerged in line with the qualitative data, the law is not comprehensive and inclusive, it is expected to be developed over time and does not sufficiently guarantee personal rights. It eliminates the practice of equal pay for equal work and disturbs the peace at school. The fact that the law came to the fore with its material aspect also damaged the professional reputation. Stakeholder views were not taken into account while drafting the law. It is expected that the job descriptions of educators, career planning, elimination of financial concerns, increasing professional reputation, specialization according to the branch, serving professional development, and securing teacher rights.
