The study’s purpose was to examine the correlation between head teachers’ leadership practices and teachers’ job satisfaction in the Kannur Educational District, Kerala, India and to find whether their satisfaction differed based on their demographics. The study randomly sampled 200 teachers from 10 government and 10 aided secondary schools. The major finding is that all five Leadership factors (LPI) and all 21 job satisfaction factors (MSQ) were related. Other findings were (a) gender, age, educational qualifications, and years of experience of teachers were associated with satisfaction, (b) young teachers looked up to the head teacher for leadership more than their older colleagues, and (c) teachers wanted independence, recognition, creativity, moral values, variety, flexibility, and better working conditions in their job.
