Correlates of Job and Professional Satisfaction among Secondary School Administrators
Conley, Sharon; Shaw, Shirley; Glasman, Naftaly
Journal of School Leadership, v17 n1 p54-88 Jan 2007
This study examined the job and growth satisfaction of secondary school administrators. Three sets of variables (job, organizational, and personal characteristics) were tested in terms of their impact on 2 related but distinct dependent variables: job and growth satisfaction. The participants included 153 school administrators, 66 principals, and 87 assistant principals. Some analyses combined these groups, and others examined them as separate samples. Strong support was found for the association of job characteristics and some organizational characteristics with job and growth satisfaction, but there was generally a weak association of personal characteristics with these outcomes. Implications follow from study findings. (Contains 5 tables and 5 footnotes.)
