Supplemental Employment among Alabama Teachers. Occasional Papers in Educational Policy Analysis: Paper No. 412.
Cotter, Patrick R.; Hardee, Betty B.
Survey results document patterns of, and reasons for, supplemental employment among Alabama public school teachers. For background information, the respondents' opinions of education and other public services in Alabama, of teaching as a career, and of teacher salaries are also examined. Following a description of the survey process, in which 504 teachers were interviewed by telephone, generalizations about the data are presented. Findings on the following topics are reported: (1) teachers' satisfaction with education and other services; (2) their satisfaction with teaching as a profession; (3) their satisfaction with teacher salaries in general and with their own salaries; (4) employment patterns of all teachers, of those who had held supplemental jobs within the past year, and of those who had held supplemental jobs but not within the past year; and (5) respondents' plans for the upcoming summer of 1984. Data on employment patterns in the total population and the two subgroups include, where applicable, reasons for taking or not taking second jobs; group characteristics; number and types of jobs held; length of time, time of year, and number of hours worked; and amount or percentage of income earned through supplemental employment. Following the narrative presentation, two sets of tables provide detailed breakdowns of survey responses. (MCG)
