Is there relationship between teachers' job satisfaction and the size of schools? The concept of job satisfaction has always posed a challenge to management in any work organization. This is so because of its relevance to the attainment of organizational goals. If education must perform its role effectively, the teachers, the primary change agents, must be given the proper attention they deserve. The extent of their job satisfaction is dependent on how the various factors of the job are met. Usually teachers grow in unity and effectiveness as they find satisfaction of their needs.
