The social status of a school teacher in Moscow is considered as the result of a ten year period of the education system reforms. The signs of social stratification: income, education level and the factors influencing the teacher position prestige are described. The empirical basis consists of statistical data and the results of sociological surveys. The main factor attracting teachers to work at the school is the salary, which attracts male teachers of the most working age to the school, thereby reducing the feminization of the contingent of teachers. The negative factors are physical and moral overload and legal insecurity in case of conflicts. According to most signs, the mass profession of "school teacher" in Moscow can rightfully be considered a representative of the «middle class».
