Therefore, Ha1 is accepted. The correlation between teachers’ commitment and leadership behavior of principals is positive. It is only with the students’ performance in Math, not in Science and English, that teachers’ commitment to job and commitment to organization are correlated negatively. Therefore, Ha2 is accepted only for the subject area Math.
