abstract

  • This study examined the effect of administrative support on teachers' job satisfaction and intent to stay in teaching. The study employed a path analysis to the data of regular, full-time, public school teachers from the Schools and Staffing Survey teacher questionnaire. Administrative support was the most significant predictor of teachers' job satisfaction, while teachers' job satisfaction was the most significant predictor of teachers' intent to stay in teaching. It was also confirmed that administrative support mediates the effect of teaching experience, student behavior, and teachers' satisfaction with their salary on teachers' job satisfaction and intent to stay in teaching. © 2010.
