A cross sectional study was conducted to investigate relationship of religiosity and compassion with job satisfaction in special and general school teachers. It was hypothesized that religiosity and compassion will be positively related to job satisfaction in both special and general school teachers. Moreover it was expected that compassion will mediate relationship between religiosity and job satisfaction. Religious orientation scale- revised (Gorush & Pherson, 1989) was used to assess strength of intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity. Compassion scale (Pommier & Neff, 2003) was used to assess level of compassion and the generic Job satisfaction scale (Macdonald & Maclntyre, 1997) was used to measure level of job satisfaction of the participants. Results from regression analysis showed that intrinsic religiosity predicted job satisfaction in both special and general school teachers. While extrinsic religiosity and compassion did not predict job satisfaction in both type of school teachers. It was also noted that compassion did not mediate the relationship between religiosity and job satisfaction.
Keywords: religiosity, compassion, job satisfaction, special school teachers.
