The American Teacher. The Metropolitan Life Survey.
Harris (Louis) and Associates, Inc., New York, NY.
A report is given on the attitudes of elementary and secondary public school teachers toward public education in the United States. Data were obtained by a nation-wide survey of 1,981 teachers. The report summarizes responses and information on: (1) major study findings; (2) a profile of teachers in the United States; (3) the job satisfaction of the American teacher; (4) teachers' ratings of their own schools; (5) teachers' views on the seriousness of problems in the schools; (6) teachers' reactions to various suggestions for improving the schools; (7) teachers' attitudes toward merit pay and various measures of their performance; and (8) teachers' attitudes toward federal involvement in education. Thirty-two tables present teachers' attitudes and ratings in response to the questionnaire. The first appendix outlines the survey methodology; the second is a copy of the questionnaire used in the survey. (JD)
