  • Abstract

    This data collection, a revised version of SCHOOLS AND STAFFING SURVEY, 1987-1988 [UNITED STATES] (ICPSR 9846), consists of four integrated surveys of schools, administrators, and teachers in the United States. Information is presented separately for public and private schools in this revised version of the collection. Parts 1 and 2, the Teacher Demand and Shortage Surveys, provide information on student enrollment, number of teachers, position vacancies, new hires, teacher salaries and incentives, and hiring and retirement policies. Parts 3 and 4, the School Administrator Surveys, include information about training, experience, professional background, and job activities of school principals and headmasters. Parts 5 and 6, the School Surveys, present data on student characteristics, staffing patterns, student-teacher ratios, types of programs and services offered, length of school day and school year, graduation and college application rates, and teacher turnover rates. Questions in Parts 7 and 8, the Teacher Surveys, cover teacher education and training, teaching assignment, teaching experience, certification, teaching workload, perceptions and attitudes about teaching, job mobility, and workplace conditions.
