Texas Teachers and Moonlighting in the 1980's.
Henderson, David L.; Schlesinger, Frank J.
The study represents a decade of research on Texas teachers' morale and moonlighting habits. It has been repeated biannually since 1980. The average Texas teacher is a 43 year-old female, making $26,161 salary, married with a working spouse, has a bachelor's degree, is not the major breadwinner, teaches in a suburban district, has 15.4 years of teaching experience with 37 percent seriously considering leaving the teaching profession. One of five teachers moonlights, feels that it is detrimental to teaching, supports the No Pass/No Play rule, wants to retain the career ladder, and believes that the quality of teaching is the same as two years ago.
