Women Teachers in Newfoundland and Labrador 1972: A Statistical Description.
Bulcock, Jeffrey W.; And Others
This statistical survey of women teachers in Newfoundland and Labrador was financed by the Faculty of Education at Memorial University and was carried out under the auspices of the Department of Education. A 17 page questionnaire was mailed to a provincial sample of women teachers who were teaching during the 1971-72 school year. It was designed to elicit a wide range of information on biographic and demographic characteristics, career development and satisfaction, professional interests and attitudes, and economic consideration. This report is the first in Canada to present descriptive information of women teachers both comprehensive in scope and generalizable to a provincial population. It is intended that the data on which this normative report is based will be used for a series of analytical studies on such questions as (1) determinants of professional and community involvements of women teachers, (2) factors affecting women teachers' support of militant professionalism, (3) determinants of the probability of women teachers making permanent careers in teaching, (4) analysis of the work satisfaction of women teachers, and (5) women teachers' attitudes toward their professional training. The body of the report presents the data collected in 31 statistical tables. Appendixes are attached which include the questionnaire, a guide for assistance in completing the questionnaire, and followup letters. (BD)
