The aim of this study is to determine whether organizational commitment levels of primary school teachers differ according to some variables. Our study was carried out with 50 primary school teachers (19 female and 31 male) working in Iskilip who volunteered to participate in the study. Although there is no agreed definition, organizational commitment is defined as the degree of identification and integration that an individual feels towards a particular organization. Organizational commitment consists of three issues; accepting the objectives of the organization with a strong belief, the desire to strive for the goals of the organization and a clear desire to remain within the organization. In the study, Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ), which was adapted to Turkish by Nusret Erceylan, was used. The original form of the scale consisting of 15 questions was developed by Lyman W. Porter, Richard M. Steers and Richard T. Mowday in 1974. In the study, the organizational commitment of the sample group was found at medium level; no significant relationship was found between gender, age, working hours at school and total length of service of the sample group and their organizational commitment.
