Auther : Abdul Samad Al-Aghbary

     The study aims at finding the level of job satisfaction among public school principals and to identify the items that got the highest and lowest job satisfaction, and finally to determine the kinds of relationship that exist between job satisfaction and independent variables, such as type of the school building, educational stages, age and job experience.

     The researcher has developed an instrument, which consists of twenty (20) items distributed to a sample of 83 general school principals who attended a training program at Al-Ahsa Teachers’ College during the 1421/22.  The study investigates the attitudes and opinions of the trainees regarding their salary, participation in the decision marking process and chances available to improve their professional career, and school climate that includes relationship with students, teachers, educational administrators etc.

     The results of the study indicate that job satisfaction of their salary, feeling of achievement and school climate includes relationship with students, teachers, and educational administrators.  The job satisfaction of their salary for example, has reached a moderate level of 72.3% which reflects 60 principals out of 83, while only 4.8% expressed their low job satisfaction regarding some items such as: lack of co-operation by educational administration, and students, parents and the status of school building.  However, the highest job satisfaction represents 22.9% of about 19 principals.

     The findings indicate that no correlation exists between job satisfaction and independent variables.  The study concluded by providing a set of recommendations for further research.
