design. The locale of the study was RUIRU division, Thika district, Kenya. The target

population was seven hundred and twenty seven (727) teachers in fifty seven (57)

schools. Simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample of twenty eight

them. The researcher used questionnaire as a tool of data collection. After the

presentation, interpretation and analysis ofthe data, it wasfound out that, other tools for

data collection as observation and interview schedule could also have been used to

obtain more information not provided in the questionnaire. A statistical analysis of the

quantitative aspects (mean, mode, percentages, use of graphs and tables) was done by

use of statistical package for social sciences to generate appropriate inferences. The

researcher reviewed related literature of the previous researchers to determine any

existing gaps of knowledge. The review of the related literature showed that, there was

still a problem of job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction among the public primary

school teachers. The research findings reviewed that the greatestfactor ofdissatisfaction
