Ernest Dery, Felix Puopiel


The study sought to determine the satisfaction and commitment among teachers of public Senior High Schools in the Tamale Metropolis. The study gathered data from two main sources namely secondary and primary sources. Questionnaire survey and interview schedule were the main instruments employed in gathering primary data for analysis. The following key findings were established through the study. The findings indicated that the following will increase teachers’ satisfaction and prevent attrition. These are: participation in decision making, good working environment, adequate support from parents, school heads, colleagues and the public, provision of accommodation and incentives package, students’ performance and discipline among students and opportunities for promotion. The study also found that teachers were satisfied with the various dimension of the teaching job that included supervision, work-group and nature of worker. However, they were not satisfied with pay and promotion. The satisfaction among them was low. The teachers’ commitment was also low. In conclusion, the study revealed that if the factors that cause dissatisfaction among teachers are improved upon, teachers will not only be satisfied with job, but will be ready to work for their schools/ organizations.
