Abstract

The study investigated staff remuneration as a correlate of teachers’ job satisfaction in public secondary schools in Anambra State. Four research questions guided the study and four null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study was a correlational research design. The population of the study comprised 5133 teachers (756 males and 4377 female teachers) in 263 public secondary schools in the six Education Zones in Anambra State. The sample of 513 teachers (that is, 10% of the population) was used for the study. Stratified and simple random sampling techniques were used for the study. The instruments for data collection were researcher-structured questionnaires titled: Staff Remuneration Questionnaire (SRQ) and Teachers’ Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (TJSQ). The instruments were subjected to face and construct validation. The reliability of the instrument was determined using Cronbach Alpha Coefficient method and the average coefficient value of 0.82 for SRQ and 0.83 for TJSQ were obtained which was considered highly reliable and suitable for the study. Pearson Product Moment Correlation and multiple regression analysis were used for the study. The study revealed that teachers’ professional development (r = 0.551; p = 0.000), teachers’ recognition (r = 0.568; p = 0.000) positively and significantly related to teachers’ job satisfaction in public secondary schools in Anambra State to a moderate extent. The study also showed that payment of salary (r = 0.762; p = 0.000) and fringe benefit (r = 0.723; p = 0.000) positively and significantly related to teachers’ job satisfaction in public secondary schools in Anambra State to a high extent. The study concluded that creating a good organisational climate and appropriate staff remuneration is of necessity because their components have shown to be a good determinant of teachers’ job satisfaction in public secondary schools in Anambra State. Based on the findings, the study recommended that since staff remuneration is positively and significantly related to teachers’ job satisfaction, administrators should practice regular staff remuneration in the school setting in order to keep sustaining teachers’ job satisfaction in public secondary schools in Anambra State.
