The level or degree of job satisfaction experienced by a teacher depends on a plethora of conditions and factors. Job satisfaction as a theoretical construct can be measured by observing the extent to which a teacher is motivated for his or her task and by assessing the level of his or her morale as a professional. Since it has been surmised that Afrikaans-speaking teachers were experiencing low levels of job satisfaction because of all the recent changes in South Africa and in its education system since 1994, a survey was done to establish whether this was indeed the case. No evidence could be found that teachers were indeed experiencing low morale or low motivational levels, both of which are indicators of job satisfaction. On the contrary, it was found that they were still experiencing acceptable levels of job satisfaction, although certain job-related factors and conditions were detrimental to their experience of job satisfaction. These require urgent attention by the relevant authorities.
