How to improve performance and reduce turnover of teachers is two crucial issues for the education administrators. This study addressed these under-explored issues with a focus on stress and commitment, based on an investigation of 164 school teachers in Singapore. The findings of the study indicate that organisational commitment predicts both self-rated and supervisor-rated performance. Stress and stress-square are also the significant predictors of self-rating performance. Stress, organisational commitment, professional commitment, alternative employment opportunities are found to be significant predictors of turnover intention. The results suggested that administrators in education sector should pay attention to teachers' commitment and stress.
