Professional development of teachers is an issue under heated discussion in reform and development of education, while impetus for a teacher’s professional development is the key to teacher’s development. In the context of planned urban and rural development, the career impetus for the development of teachers in primary and middle school has received more and more attention. This study, adopting methods of questionnaire and interviews, conducts an investigation and analysis over the current status of career development impetus among teachers of middle and primary schools in County R, and Districts B and Y, Chongqing City. The result shows that, for the surveyed teachers, career development motivations totally are in good conditions but individually vary a lot, the impetus mainly derives from the teachers’ own need, the generation of career development impetus is restricted by paradox factors and need cooperation of the society, schools, and teachers themselves. It also indicates that, for different groups of teachers in middle schools and primary schools, there exists certain level of difference in career development impetus.
