The study was grounded from organizational support theory and employed cross sectional research design through a sample of 99 secondary school teachers in Tanzania. Results from descriptive analyses and interviews revealed low POS and dissatisfaction of teachers. Results call for managerial attention especially on energizing POS through ethical leadership and effective human resources management practices. This study calls for empirical integration in respect to mediators (fulfilment of teachers rights and needs) in the relationship between POS and teachers commitment to teach in secondary schools.
