In this study, a descriptive research method was used. A sample of 280 educators (teachers and managers) from elementary, secondary, high, and pre-university schools of Boushehr province was selected through multi-stage sampling. Research instrument was the California Critical Thinking Skills Test. In order to answer research questions a use was made of t-test and factorial ANOVA. The results suggested that there was no significant difference among educators' critical thinking. The results also indicated that teacher' inductive and deductive reasoning critical thinking skills were highest.
