Abstract

The study investigated total quality management practices as predictors of teachers’ organizational behaviour in public secondary schools in Anambra State. Three research questions guided the study and three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Correlational research design was adopted for this study. The population of the study comprised 5,549 respondents made up of 263 principals and 5,286 teachers in the 263 public secondary schools in Anambra State. The sample for this study consisted of 660 respondents made up of 132 principals and 528 teachers drawn using proportionate stratified random sampling technique. Two sets of instruments namely: ‘‘Total Quality Management Practices Questionnaire (TQMPQ) and ‘‘Teachers’ Organizational Behaviour Scale (TOBS)’’ were used for data collection. The instruments were subjected to face validation by three experts made up of two experts in Educational Management and an expert in Measurement and Evaluation, all from Department of Educational Foundations, Faculty of Education, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam Campus. The construct validation of the instruments was determined using factor analysis. The internal consistencies of the instruments were determined using Cronbach Alpha method which yielded overall reliability indices of 0.80 for TQMPQ and 0.77 for TOBS respectively. The instruments were administered by the researcher with the help of five research assistants who are secondary school teachers in Anambra State. A total of 660 copies were distributed, 132 copies to principals and 528 copies to teachers, out of which 648 copies, made up of 132 from principals and 516 from teachers were properly filled and successfully retrieved indicating 98% return rate. Simple regression was used to answer the research questions and test hypotheses 1-6, while multiple regression to test hypothesis 7. The findings of the study revealed among others that incentive and teamwork practices are also significant predictors of teachers’ organizational behaviour in public secondary schools in Anambra State. It was also found out that training practice is a significant predictor of teachers’ organizational behaviour in secondary schools in Anambra State. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that Parents Teachers Association should donate funds to principals to enable them provide incentive practices to teachers for improving their organizational behaviour.
