The purpose of the study was to find out the
contributions of delegation and the job satisfaction of
primary school teachers in Awei Sub County with
specific objectives of task allocation, teachers’
responsibilities and teacher power position’s influence
on job satisfaction. This study carried out a quantitative
research with non-experimental, co-relational, cross-
sectional, survey design. The population comprised of
104 both primary school teachers and head teachers in
Awei Sub County from where a sample size of 82
respondents were sampled using on Solvent’s formula.
Findings revealed that there is a positive relationship
between delegation and job satisfaction that is indicated
by 0.743 which is statistically significant at 0.000<0.01
and the coefficient of determination (Adjusted R2
of 0.545 implies that 54.5% of the variation in job
satisfaction of teachers can be explained by the level of
task allocation, responsibility assignment and power
position. The researcher recommends that head
teachers should allocate more tasks to teachers, assign
more responsibilities and also give them more powers in
the position they occupy to execute responsibilities. All
this has likely led to their job satisfaction.
