Conversely, the teachers indicated they are least satisfied with the aspects under the job characteristics dimension. Additionally, the independent t-test and MANOVA revealed significant differences in teachers‟ job satisfaction in relation to gender, age, school location and school type, but there are no significant differences in relation to marital status, teaching experience, teacher type and promotional position in all the five core job dimensions.

These findings are both consistent and inconsistent with the previous research findings. This study was done for school administrators, employers, policy makers, planners and school owners in Tanzania and other countries. ...
