ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to determine the effect of vocational high school administrators' leadership behaviors on teacher job satisfaction. The study group of the research consists of 21 technical teachers who work at vocational high schools in the city of Isparta. The data obtained have been analyzed by calculating the frequency, arithmetic mean, correlation and regression analyses. The vocational high school administrators exhibit all types of behaviors in every dimension of leadership at the level of "frequently". It has been understood that there is a significant correlation between the dimensions of administrators' leadership behaviors and teacher job satisfaction. Another considerable finding of the research is that the effect of individual-oriented leadership behaviors - one of the dimensions of leadership behaviors- on teacher job satisfaction is higher than the effects of other dimensions of leadership behaviors.
