Abstract

This study assessed the influence of participatory practices upon secondary school teachers’ job satisfaction and commitment in Tanzania. Specifically the study examined the extent to which participatory decision making influences retention of secondary school teachers in the teaching profession, it also assessed if teachers’ work experience is a factor of secondary school teachers’ job satisfaction and participation in schools and lastly it examined the relationship between secondary school teachers’ job satisfaction and teachers commitment in schools. A mixed approach was employed in connection with survey design. A sample comprised of eighty one (81) respondents. The data were collected using questionnaire, interview and documentary analysis. Data were processed and analysed using SPSS programmes in order to maximize accuracy. The findings of the study revealed that, teachers’ job satisfaction and effective commitment are the result of participation. The significant relationship between job satisfaction and commitment exist, since one does not exist without the other. The findings suggest that, the higher the participation level, the higher the teachers’ job satisfaction which leads to high teachers’ commitment and retention.
