Secondary School Science Teachers, 1969. Background and Professional Characteristics.
The study updates and expands a similar study carried out in 1960-61. The present study was made to ascertain the educational and professional backgrounds and to obtain information on the operating milieu of teachers of secondary school (grades 7-12) science (including social science and mathematics) in the public and private schools of the United States. Particular attention was paid to the teachers' formal education backgrounds and to their participation in National Science Foundation programs. The analysis includes also attention to demographic variables and to the teachers' subject specialization, their income, their professional and nonprofessional activities, and their future career plans. The report is essentially a reference work with separate analysis of data by field of major teaching assignment. (Author)
