Exploring the Relationship Between Teachers’ and Principals’ Perceptions of Teachers Decision- Making and Teachers’ Job Satisfaction. Kristina Brezicha, Georgia State University; Sakiko Ikoma, American Institutes for Research; Hyowon Park, Pennsylvania State University; Gerald LeTendre, Pennsylvania State University

This paper explores the relationship between teachers’ and principals’ perception of teachers’ involvement in decision-making processes at their schools and the relationship to teachers’ job satisfaction.

After controlling for a range of salient factors, we find a negative relationship between this gap and teachers’ job satisfaction.
