The structural shock such as a change of regimes and demographics makes critical junctures for institutional change. At this time accumulated conflicts and problems can lead to the institutional changes through the actor"s privileged access to the power. The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence from the three levels of changes(structure, institution, action) on teacher promotion system(TPS).
The findings of the study were as follows: First, the TPS has been related to changes of regimes and an increase in student populations at the structure level. Second, at the institution level the career oriented TPS has been maintained by teaching experience-esteemed culture and institutional constraints for about 30 years. Third, structural change has been lead to changes in the TPS. But recently structural changes failed to lead the rapid TPS changes because of teacher"s resistance. It means that an integrative approach was needed to the analysis of institutional changes.
In conclusion, this study confirmed that the TPS changes have been historical outcomes from the interactions among the three levels of changes. Then it suggested the following policy implications as the diversifications of the TPS, the building of new verification system, and the total management for the TPS.
