Abstract (Summary)

Public education leaders must be aware of teacher job dissatisfaction in educational settings to increase teacher retention. The quantitative research study with a correlational design determined (a) the extent that teachers perceive servant leadership behaviors in a public education setting, and (b) the relationship between perceptions of servant leadership behaviors and teacher job satisfaction. A sample of 115 full-time teachers from seven high schools in the Rocky Mountain Region of the U.S. completed the Organizational Leadership Assessment (OLA) instrument. Results demonstrate a positive correlation between perceptions of servant leader behaviors and teacher job satisfaction in a public school district. Implications for educational leadership include developing servant-minded principals who can build a servant oriented climate within the public education system.
