Abstract


The study was to investigate organizational correlates of secondary school teachers’ job commitment in Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State in Nigeria. Two null hypotheses were generated to guide the study. The research design adopted was ex-post facto. The study sample of two hundred and eighty (280) teachers was drawn using a simple random sampling technique from seventy-four (74) public secondary schools in Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State. The instrument used for data collection was a 4-item point scale (Likert type). Data obtained were analyzed using Pearson product moment correlation analysis to test the formulated hypotheses at the 0.05 level of significance. The findings of this study revealed that principals’ leadership style, teachers’ participatory roles in the decision-making process significantly relate to teachers’ job commitment. Thus the study recommended that school administrators should adopt an acceptable leadership style in the school system, so as to carry everybody along. That teachers should always be motivated to play an active role during meetings, deliberations and other decision-making processes.

Keywords: Secondary schools, Organizational correlates, Teachers‟ job commitment.
