Job satisfaction has been associated with a variety of behaviours relating to communication. However, very little research has been conducted in primary schools encompassing job satisfaction and a range of communication variables. This study investigated the relationships between aspects of organizational communication and facets of job satisfaction. The participants were 356 staff members from 52 primary schools of six Catholic education systems in New South Wales, Australia. The participants completed a survey consisting of the Organizational Communication in Primary Schools Questionnaire and the Teacher Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (TJSQ). Ten organizational communication factors and nine job satisfaction factors were identified. Multiple regression analyses identified several organizational communication factors that were predictors of job satisfaction. The results suggest implications for policy and practice with regard to communication in these schools. (Contains 4 tables.)
