Description
  • Abstract

    For this survey, a nationally representative sample of 6,299 private school teachers was drawn from a list of teachers employed in the fall of 1985 in a sample of 1,700 private schools in 75 areas of the country (see also NATIONAL SURVEY OF PRIVATE SCHOOLS, 1985-1986 [ICPSR 2396]). Data were collected from teachers by mail and telephone on topics such as salary, opinions, years of experience, educational background, and class load. Variables covering educational background include highest academic degree earned, which subject(s) their degrees were in, and further training courses taken, whether for credit, in-service training, or other training. Information on class load includes grade and subject matter taught, number of students enrolled, and whether their classrooms had teacher aides.
