Ansah-Hughes, Winifred
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n30 p161-165 2016
The purpose of this study was to examine job satisfaction among teachers in the Techiman Municipality. Three hundred and six (306) teachers were randomly sampled from a total of one thousand four hundred and sixty-one (1461) Junior High School and Senior High School teachers in the Municipality. The instrument used for the data collection was the questionnaire. The researcher however had three research questions to work with. Schools within the municipality were grouped into four clusters and a simple random sampling technique using the lottery approach was used to select one cluster for which questionnaires were administered. The findings of the study were that many teachers in the Techiman Municipality perceived teaching as their ideal profession but most teachers will prefer to change their profession as a result of dissatisfaction. Also teachers felt their conditions of service were not good enough and most teachers in the Municipality felt dissatisfied with security in the profession.
