Assessing Personal and Organizational Predictors of Managerial Commitment in Schools.
Shin, Hyun-Seok; Reyes, Pedro
Findings from a study to examine the relationships of both personal and organizational predictors with both managerial commitment and job satisfaction of school administrators are presented in this paper. A total of 99 public school and 77 private school administrators participated in a mailed survey, a 70.4 percent response rate. Multiple regression analysis and multivariate analysis of variances indicated that school type was the only significant predictor of both commitment and satisfaction. Private school administrators expressed higher levels of commitment and job satisfaction than did their public school counterparts. Because school culture may be an important factor of commitment and job satisfaction, administrators should treat the needs of educational constituencies as critical. Five tables and one figure are included. (62 references) (LMI)
