Information about Colorado's school teachers was derived from the public school districts and Boards of Cooperative Services in fall 1993. Of the 62,920.8 certificated and noncertificated staff, 53.5% were classroom teachers. The average salary for the 33,661 public school teachers was $33,826, somewhat below the national average. The number of classroom teachers increased 0.7% over those in 1992, while pupil membership increased 2.0% in the same period. Females comprised 71.6% of Colorado's teachers, as well as 39% of principals and just over 10% of superintendents. American Indians, Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics represented 9.0% of Colorado's teachers, while the same groups made up 25.9% of the total student population. Of all classroom teachers, 65.6% were aged over 40. Three illustrations and 12 tables present details about the characteristics of Colorado teachers. (SLD)
