Abstract: The purpose of the study was to delve into factors which influence job satisfaction among teachers in both private and public basic schools within the Ho municipality of the Volta Region in Ghana. Methods applied were descriptive survey, and the purposive and random sampling to select respondents for the study. In all, 200 teachers were involved. Questionnaire was used to collect the data which was analyzed by simple percentage and represented in tabular forms. The study revealed that the private school teachers were more satisfied with the work environment than the public school teachers. Teachers from both private and public basic schools were very satisfied with the administrative roles of their heads. Private school teachers were not satisfied with job security, factors which serve as guarantee for their future and retirement benefits, and students’ participation in co-curricular activities. Public school teachers were not satisfied with working materials at their disposal, students’ participation in class exercises, and parental support for their wards. It is recommended that the Ghana Education Service and other stakeholders in education should provide the basic learning materials to enhance the work environment of the public basic school teachers. The private school administrators should involve the staff in decision making and also harness other potentials of students for holistic development.
