This study aimed to discuss the influence of teachers’ organizational silence on job performance and the effect of the chain mechanism of psychological empowerment—organizational commitment. This research surveyed 564 primary and secondary school teachers in China through questionnaires. The results show that teachers’ organizational silence is significantly negatively correlated with job performance, teachers’ indifferent silence negatively predicts job performance and its subdimensions, and teachers’ acquiescent silence positively significantly predicts relationship performance. The chain mechanism of teachers’ psychological empowerment—organizational affective commitment has a full mediation effect on the relationship between teachers’ organizational silence and job performance.
