Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Princeton, NJ.
Section 1 of this report presents the results of a national survey of public school teachers in 1990, which solicited their views and opinions on the current condition of teaching. Over 20,000 teachers responded to the survey which contained questions ranging from their assessment of overall morale to the availability of instructional materials, from their assessment of a decade of school reform to parents' support of teachers. The questionnaire covered the following topics: (1) attitudes and values of teachers today; (2) characteristics of today's students; (3) learning and instruction; (4) working conditions: school climate; (5) working conditions: buildings and materials; (6) teacher involvement in decision making; (7) the status of the profession; and (8) school improvement. Section 2 of the report presents state-by-state comparisons of the survey results. Comparisons are based on responses to the topics covered by the questionnaire. Results are displayed on tables. (JD)
