Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to examine the antecedents of leadership satisfaction among teachers in Malaysian secondary schools. All variables were measured using 7- point interval scale: school leadership satisfaction (6 items) and overall job’s satisfaction (4 items) as the endogenous variable, school infrastructure satisfaction (6 items) and satisfaction on teacher’s duties (6 items) as exogenous variables. Questionnaires were distributed to 100 teachers based on a random sampling method. The data was input into SPSS 14 and exploratory factor analysis result shows that the school leadership satisfaction and overall job satisfaction were combined as one variable which is named as leadership satisfaction. The data was then analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) through AMOS 16. The result shows that the goodness of fit indices of structural equation model are adequate at GFI=0.902, P-Value=0.349, RMSEA=0.024 and ratio (cmin/df)=1.056. The finding supports one significant direct effect in the revised model, thus supporting the hypothesis regarding school infrastructure satisfaction is positively related to leadership satisfaction (β=0.88, cr=4.404, p<0.001). The result is discussed in the perspective of teacher’s satisfaction towards school leadership.
