Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between school climate factors and teacher’s job satisfaction. Descriptive Correlational research design was used to see the current state of the variables and to explore the relationship of these variables in government secondary school in Addis Ababa City Administration. A total of three government secondary schools were studied and 93 teachers participated in the study. The instrument used in this study was a combination of two questionnaires: The first instrument known as school climate questionnaire was used to assess overall school climate. The second instrument was job satisfaction questionnaire which was used to assess the job satisfaction of teachers. School climate factors such as working environment, leadership style, training and development were examined for their relationship to teacher’s job satisfaction. Statistics Package for Social Science version 22 was used to process the data and Pearson Product - Moment Correlation Coefficient; t-test and regression analysis were used to examine the relationship. The data analysis revealed three major findings. First, the best predicator of teacher’s job satisfaction was training and development. Second, working environment was found to be a predictor of teacher’s job satisfaction. Third leadership style was also found to be a predictor of teacher’s job satisfaction. The results of this study confirmed the importance of school climate factors as predictors of teacher’s job satisfaction. Based on the findings, it was suggested that principals and policy makers should create a favorable school climate by considering all the selected school climate dimensions to enhance better job satisfaction among teacher. The findings strongly suggest that Addis Ababa Regional Education Bureau should also be more sensitive to teachers needs to enhance a conducive and enriching school climate by providing all the necessary facilities and resources in the schools.
