Two out of five teachers are unhappy in their jobs -- with most citing their school's administration, discipline issues and standardized testing as top concerns, according to a survey by Public Agenda and Learning Point Associates.

Close to 900 teachers nationwide completed the surveys, which asked more than 100 questions.
