Liza J. Elumbra



This study aimed to determine the relationship involving school based management practices and satisfaction of teachers on professional development program. A quantitative descriptive correlation design was used to investigate the relationship between and among the three variables. A total of 200 teachers of Tugbok District were the respondents of the study and a complete enumeration was performed. Adapted survey questionnaires validated by experts and pilot tested were used in the study. The statistical tools used were mean, Pearson Product Moment Correlation, and multiple regression. The findings of the study revealed that the level of school-based management practices of teachers was high, as well as their satisfaction on the professional development. Significant and positive correlations were obtained between school-based management practices and satisfaction towards the professional development of teachers. Results also showed that provision of sufficient time and other resources and promotion of collegiality and collaboration were predictors of teachers’ satisfaction towards their professional development while enhancement of content and pedagogic knowledge were not.
