Abstract

The goal of this study was to identify the factors influencing teacher job satisfaction at Al-Ameen Group of Schools in West Bengal. The descriptive survey methodology was used for the investigation. These schools were chosen at random to participate in the pilot project. Information was gathered using a structured and validated questionnaire. The instrument underwent face and content validation, and the Alpha reliability approach was used to assess the instrument's reliability. The obtained Alpha Reliability coefficient was 0.763. Using factor analysis and descriptive statistics, the data were coded and examined. According to a factor analysis, eight factors explained 65.187% of the variation in teachers' job satisfaction. Security of teachers, teaching resources and infrastructure, financial incentives, role of supervisors, working order, monthly remuneration, non-financial incentives, and health scheme were the eight elements. Security of teachers, teachings resources and infrastructure, financial incentives, and role of supervisors were the main contributors to teachers' job satisfaction. The survey also showed that salary for teachers was increased and that non-financial incentives were infrequently given to them. Therefore, it was advised that responsible authorities should plan ways to support increasing teacher satisfaction in schools by offering enough security, infrastructure, instructional materials, and health care.
