Why is it important?

In the empirical investigation, a correlational-analytic design was used. The stratified random sample consisted of 120 secondary school teachers and it was found that most teachers had a moderate level of satisfaction with their work. Furthermore, it was found that job satisfaction among teachers was related to their turnover intentions and that demographics had a significant influence on this relationship except for school type.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it gave me a different perspective on the determinants of teacher motivation and satisfaction. I hope this article provides readers with a better insight into how teachers behave in relation to issues of job satisfaction, particularly in developing nations.
