The Condition of Teaching. A State by State Analysis, 1985. A Carnegie Foundation Technical Report.
Feistritzer, C. Emily
This book reports on the current condition of teaching in the United States and presents an analysis of variables for each state and the District of Columbia that affect teaching now and in the future. These variables include population changes, enrollment patterns, numbers of teachers, projected teacher shortages, salaries, school spending and the economy in general, who is going into teaching, and the education and certification of teachers. Statistical data are presented on tables with narrative analysis and commentary. In the foreword, Ernest L. Boyer makes recommendations on how to strengthen the teaching profession. (JD)
