In this study, it was tried to determine to what degree the learning organization predicted organizational commitment according to primary school teachers' perceptions. Descriptive survey model was used in this study and 429 teachers were chosen among 2387 teachers who worked in primary schools in Van in 2010-2011 education years and were included in the sample. Regression analysis was applied in the data analysis of the study. Durbin-Watson test was used to determine whether there is autocorrelation in the model. It was found that there was a significant relationship between organizational commitment dimensions and the dimensions of learning organization perception scale. Maximum three dimensions of the learning organization scale were included in the model. These were shared vision, team learning, and personal mastery. When shared vision and team learning are the predictors of compliance dimension, they explain 18% of compliance commitment. When shared vision, team learning and personal mastery are predictors of identification dimension, they explain 36% of identification commitment. When team learning and shared vision were the predictors of internalization dimension, they explain 25% of internalization commitment. It was seen that there was a low negative relationship between the dimensions of the learning organization and compliance dimension of organizational commitment; however, there was a positive but low relationship between identification and internalization dimensions.
