This series of tables presents the status of professional employees of Maryland public schools as of October 1993 by assignment, race and ethnicity, and gender. The tables show the head counts of males and females in the central offices and in elementary, secondary, and middle and combined schools. Professional staff are further classified according to race and ethnic categories designated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Work assignment codes are those used in state reporting guidelines. The grand total of professional personnel, 52,947, is divided among the state's 23 counties and Baltimore City. The majority are white (78.1%), and most are female (39,4 as opposed to 14,469 male employees). About 20% are African American, and only about 1.6% represent other ethnic groups, including Asian American, Hispanic American, and American Indian. Similar proportions of ethnic and racial groups are found among central office employees, but of the total of 2,025, 939 are male and 1,086 are female. When superintendents and deputy and assistant superintendents are considered, males outnumber females at 75 to 31. Of the state's 1,281 principals, about 72% are white, but more than half are female (649). (Contains 33 tables, grouped into 9 headings.) (SLD)
