Abstract

This paper discusses the subjective stress and strain of Swiss teachers of 5th to 9th grade(rs) on three representative random samples in the years 2006, 2010 and 2014. The assumptions of increasing subjective strain and health complaints and decreasing job satisfaction were not supported: These dimensions remain stable over time or improve even slightly. At the same time the results indicate differences between men and women and between the different language regions. The results are discussed against the background of the educational reforms on the national level.
