The role of the teacher is important, if education is to be used as an instrument for achieving positive societal transformation and national development.

The sample was selected using the stratified random sampling technique. Thirty-three junior secondary schools (JS) representing ten percent (10%) of the population and two hundred and sixty four (264) teachers representing twenty-two (22%) of the population respectively were used. A questionnaire of thirty-three items, titled Teachers Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (TJSQ) was designed for the study. The reliability of the instrument was found to be 0.72.

The major findings from the analysis of data revealed that there was a significant relationship between job satisfaction of teachers and variables such as gender, age, educational qualification, job experience, and marital status.

Based on these findings, it was concluded that teachers’ job satisfaction in public junior secondary schools in Edo State could be enhanced by educational administrators, if adequate attentions are paid to these dimensions.
