Hammer, Charles H.; Gerald, Elizabeth
These tabulations present public and private school data that were collected on questionnaires from the 1987-88 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). The report is organized into 17 tables and technical notes. The tables include numbers, percentages, and standard errors by sector, selected characteristics, and states. The following topics are addressed: continuing and newly hired full-time equivalent (FTE) teachers; certified continuing and newly hired FTE teachers; FTE positions unfilled, vacant, and abolished or withdrawn; public school districts and private schools offering teacher incentives; public school FTE teaching positions approved, filled and unfilled; and teacher salary schedules averaged for public school districts by earned degree and experience. Technical notes elaborate on selection of public school districts, schools, and teachers; data collection; effects of missing school districts and schools; questionnaire response rates; item descriptions; source code response rates; comparisons of teacher counts from the SASS file; underestimation of the number of school districts; standard errors; definitions; and geographic regions used by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. The appendix contains the SASS questionnaire, Teacher Demand and Shortage Questionnaire for Public School Districts, and an explanation of differences between it and the questionnaire for private schools.
