Abstract


This study aimed at exploring the relationship between organizational justice and job satisfaction as perceived by Jordanian physical education teachers. Participants consisted of 166 physical education teachers selected from public schools in Jordan. Organizational Justice Scale and Job in General Scale were used to collect the data. The findings revealed that the majority of physical education teachers were satisfied with their job in general and their perceptions about organizational justice were positive. Furthermore, the findings showed a positive and significant relationship between all dimensions of organizational justice and teachers' job satisfaction. Interactional justice was the best predictor of teachers' job satisfaction followed by procedural justice and distributive justice respectively. The full prediction model explained 19% of the variance in job satisfaction of physical education teachers in Jordan.
