Abstract


The aim of the present study was to examine the relationships between perceptions of teacher's transformational leadership, organizational support, organizational justice and quality of work life. A model suggesting that teacher perceptions of the transformational leadership behavior of school administrators directly affected their perceptions about quality of work life, as well as, indirectly through their perceptions of organizational justice and organizational support is proposed.  In order to test this model, a path analysis was conducted within the framework of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). Participants of the study included 658 teachers employed in state pre-schools, primary schools, junior high schools and high schools affiliated to the Ministry of National Education in Kilis province, Turkey, during the 2015-2016 academic years. "Transformational Leadership Scale", "Organizational Justice Scale", "Perceived Organizational Support Scale" and “Work- Related Quality of Life Scale" were used to collect the study data. Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis, path analysis and bootstrap analysis to determine the significance level of mediation effect were used. Analysis of the data demonstrated that there were significant positive relationships between the transformational leadership, organizational justice, organizational support, and quality of work life perceptions of the teachers. Path analysis findings showed that teacher perceptions about the presence of transformational leadership behavior among school administrators had a significant, direct and positive impact on quality of work life perceptions of the teachers and also had a significant, indirect and positive effect on teachers’ perceptions of quality of work life through their perceptions of organizational support and organizational justice.
