This report includes early tabulations from the 1985 Public School Survey of schools and teachers. The tabulations and figures are prefaced by a description of the survey methodology, indicating what the limitations are on the data and briefly describing sampling variation. The mail sample survey collected information on a nationally representative sample of 2,801 public schools and 10,650 teachers. The purpose of this report is to make preliminary data available from the survey; it is only an excerpt of what will be available on the full public use data tape. School information includes data on enrollment, staffing, minority enrollment, use of aides and volunteers, use of computers, and incentive programs for teachers. Teacher information includes data on training, experience, age, racial-ethnic affiliation, teaching salary, working hours, and additional employment. The tables conclude with a copy of the questionnaires used to collect the data. The report does not include interpretation or highlights of findings, nor does it provide cross references to other data. (MLF)
