The present study was carried on job satisfaction among teachers serving in Government and Private colleges of Jammu city. In the present study, the investigator was concerned about the job satisfaction of teachers. Teachers play key role in the improvement of education. Professor K.G. Saiyidain rightly observes, “that teaching is still an unattractive profession which many persons take up as last resort”. The learned educationists attribute this fact to two reasons. Poor financial prospects which discourage ambitious and intelligent people from financing it and lack of social esteem for the profession. The present study is concerned with job satisfaction among college teachers. It is generally found that job satisfaction is closely related to one’s efficiency. A dissatisfied worker may not be able to do his job efficiently inspite of his ability to do it well. The teaching community which is one of the largest work forces in the country affords the lives of thousands of people and ultimately the destiny of nation itself. If there is no job satisfaction among the teaching community, it will led the nation towards destruction and no other member of the community can uplift the dignity and honour of the nation. The objectives if the study were to study the significance of differences in Job Satisfaction between Government and private college teachers, to study that the teachers reach at that position according to their qualification and abilities and to study the interactional difference in Job satisfaction of gender and type of colleges. In the present investigation the sample was selected randomly from the teachers working in Govt. and private colleges in Jammu city. The total sample of the teachers is 100 (50 male and 50 female college teachers).
