Commitment to organization is important and plays a key role in the formation of an integrated human effort in an organization. The importance of organization commitment has attracted consideration over recent years and has been reflected in many management studies. Specifically, the objective of this study was to identified the significant difference between the selected demographic variables and organizational commitment. A quantitative cross sectional research design with purposive sampling was employed in collecting data. This research design was chosen because it allows predictions in a large sample with limited resources. The cross sectional survey design was used to determine the demographic variables of gender, ethnicity and gender between ethnicity. The questionnaire for the study consisted of two sections. Section One was designed to identify the demographic variables of respondents. Section Two was designed to measure the Public Primary School Senior Teacher perception of organizational commitment. The questionnaire for Organizational Commitment was originated by using the fifteen question organizational commitment measure that had been developed by Mowday et al. The respondents for this study were public primary school senior teacher who attended the two and three years intensive program that allow them to Bachelor Degree in Education Management (HMDP). Almost all the respondents age are above 40 years old regarded as senior teacher based on the Malaysian Public Services Salary Scheme. They came from various states of Malaysia. Two cohorts comprised of 107 students were chosen from 600 students who enrolled for this HMDP program which started since year 2005. This two cohorts were purposively selected because they represented almost equal amount in numbers based on gender and ethnicity or race of the major race in Malaysia that is Malay, Chinese and Indian and they were also available at the period of this study. The results revealed that organizational commitment showed no significant difference between male and female. There was significant difference for organizational commitment related to ethnic/race of Malay, Chinese and Indian. In conclusion, the degree of commitment of the organization among senior teacher has shown the differences between the ethnic/race but no different between the gender. Therefore, organization need to build up the necessary efforts to encourage and enable the different ethnic to put their commitment strongly to the organization. This will the enable organizations to meet future challenges and at the same time maintain employee’s attachment to the organization.
