Metropolitan Life Survey of State Actions to Upgrade Teachers and Education.
A nationwide survey in 1984 asked teachers their opinions on a variety of reform suggestions for educational improvement. As a followup this survey sought to determine what the states were actually doing about these reforms. In the area of teacher-related reforms, information is provided on actions taken in each state on: (1) teacher compensation; (2) career aldders; (3) merit pay; (4) new graduate apprenticeships and non-certified professionals; (5) special incentives to teach; (6) teacher competency tests; and (7) performance evaluation. State actions for each state are reported in the following areas of suggested student-related reforms: (1) basic skills; (2) broadening of the curriculum; (3) competency tests; (4) graduation requirements; (5) discipline; (6) extended school day or school year; and (7) homework.
