Harris (Louis) and Associates, Inc., New York, NY.
This survey of 2,000 K-12 public school teachers affords a retrospective on the years of major education reforms and, by examining trend data from earlier surveys, measures the impact of this period in education. Teachers' priorities for the near-term future are also examined. The report presents some possible directions schools might take during the coming decade. Educators were asked indepth questions on: (1) the quality of education, (2) school reforms, (3) school-based leadership committees, (4) the professional status of teachers, (5) accountability, (6) societal problems, (7) changes teachers want, and (8) the future. Data on specific questions are presented in charts and graphs. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. (JD)
