Description
  • Abstract

    The purpose of this data collection was to identify the patterns by which teachers become certified, enter teaching, leave teaching, and return to teaching and to identify the extent to which these patterns are related to race, sex, age, subject specialty, test scores, salary, and district characteristics. Variables include information on career histories, NTE scores, subject area training and specialization, individual salary data, school district demographics, teacher certification and entry into the system, attrition, career interruption, and interdistrict mobility.
