The research included 20 studies within the meta-analysis. Validity and publication bias in the research were investigated with Rosenthal’s failsafe N method, Begg and Mazumdar’s rank correlation and Egger’s linear regression test and it was concluded that the research had low publication bias. Normal distribution of studies included within the scope of the meta-analysis was investigated and the homogeneity test was completed to identify the meta-analysis model. The random effects model was used to calculate the general effect size of the studies included in the research. The meta-analysis results identified that the general effect size for the relationship between organizational support perceptions and organizational commitment levels of educational employees had moderate level and was positive. Additionally, there was no significant difference according to the moderator variables of year, school type and organizational commitment scale used in the studies for the effect size of studies about the relationship between organizational support perceptions and organizational commitment levels of educational employees.
