Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
Intended to make possible the comparison of staffing patterns in one school system with those in systems of similar enrollment size and expenditure level, this report was developed through a national survey of 1,101 school systems conducted in 1981-82. Included are pupil-staff and teacher-staff ratios for individual positions and aggregate categories of professional personnel. These data are presented separately for large, medium, small, and very small school systems and for five levels of per pupil expenditure of the reporting school systems. Ratios contained in the report include the number of pupils per teacher, counselor, librarian, school nurse, school building professional staff member, principal, assistant principal, school building level administrative staff member, central office professional staff member, and teacher aide. It also contains ratios of teachers to administrators and aides. (Author/JM)
