Job satisfaction affects teachers' motivation, investment and performance to a great extent, and then affects the development of students and the improvement of school education quality. At present, there are a lot of researches on teachers' job satisfaction. There are many factors affecting teachers' job satisfaction, such as teachers' gender, educational background, and the support of principals. Based on the teacher survey data of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2015, this study analyzed whether gender and educational background of Chinese teachers have differences in the job satisfaction of teachers. It is found that gender and educational background have no significant influence on teachers' job satisfaction.
