PRIETO QUINTANA, César Omar; SANCHEZ BALTASAR, Laura Berenice  and  MAYETT MORENO, Yésica. Organizational commitment in public and private high schools in Chihuahua, Mexico. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.17, pp.713-740. ISSN 2007-7467.

The aim of this research was to develop a model to manage the organizational commitment in public and private high school teachers´ of the Higher Education Department of the Government State in Chihuahua. The model was based on the results of a non-experimental, descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional study. We administered 618 surveys in 174 public and private High Schools (29.1% administrative employees and 70.9% teachers). Data were analyzed with the SPSS® software using descriptive statistics, the “t of student” test, ANOVA and Pearson correlations. The main results revealed the existence of a strong organizational commitment of teachers and administrative employees to their schools, mainly in the affective dimension. We identified that the sociodemographic variables that influence the commitment degree of workers, such as age, if they have children, seniority in the education sector, academic education and educational level, increases the affective and calculated commitment (material attachment) of the employees such as economic bonuses, stimulus for punctuality and assistance, retirement and other legal benefits, that would increase in their incomes.
