dc.description.abstract Teacher Job satisfaction wants and working condition wants have long been of interest to superordinates. This study was designed to investigate the hierarchy of teacher job satisfaction wants and working condition wants as perceived by principals, superintendents, school board presidents, National Education Association Uniserv directors, and field representatives of the American Federation of Teachers. The survey instrument was based on the work of Frederick Herzberg and Jerry Pipes. This national study was limited to randomly selected samples from the afore mentioned groups representing four geographical regions of the United States.Eighteen two-way comparisons of actual teacher wants and teacher wants as perceived by school board presidents, superintendents, principals, N.E.A. representatives and representatives of the A.F.T. were proposed. The Spearman rank-order correlation coefficient was used to determine degrees of difference or congruency.The data indicates that elementary and secondary teachers are in unison about their feelings toward Job satisfaction and working condition wants in the current educational environment. Principals, superintendents, and school board presidents have an accurate perception of what teachers expect out of, their Jobs. The Union groups did not accurately predict what teachers wanted from their Jobs. en_US
