Demographic Variables Effect the Organizational Commitment of Teachers: Myth or Reality
The existing study was expected to identify the relationship between organizational commitment and demographic variation of private secondary school teachers. The study’s objectives were; (i) to identify the relationship between qualification and organizational commitment of secondary school teachers, (ii)to find out the relationship between marital status and organizational commitment of secondary school teachers, and (iii) to identify the relationship between teaching experience and organizational commitment of secondary school teachers. The nature of the study was descriptive and quantitative and for the collection of data, the survey method was used. In Rawalpindi and Islamabad, there was 13764 private secondary school, work. Through simple random sampling techniques, 860 teachers were randomly selected. Organizational Commitment Scale (OCS) developed by Allen and Meyer (1997) was used as a research instrument in this study. The researcher individually visited the sampled schools and collected the data. To test hypotheses, analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used. It was found that there is no correlation among academic, professional qualification, and marital status with the organizational commitment of teachers. It is further concluded that there is a relationship between the experience of teachers and the organizational commitment of teachers. The teachers have the experience of 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, and 16-20 years are more committed toward their jobs.
