Abstract

This article is to verify the relationship among teacher job satisfaction, principal's leadership style, and principal's decision making style. Based on samples randomly chosen from among primary, secondary and high schools in Chinese educational systems in China, the required data were gathered through a mail survey. The results confirmed that the principal’s decision making plays the role of a mediator between teacher job satisfaction and leadership style.

Keywords: principal’s leadership style, principal’s decision making style, teacher job satisfaction
