SASS by State. 1993-94 Schools and Staffing Survey: Selected State Results.
Bandeira de Mello, Victor; Broughman, Stephen P.
The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) is conducted through questionnaires mailed to teachers, principals, and district administrators in a sample of the nation's public and private schools. First conducted in 1987-88, the SASS is now planned for every 5 years, with a teacher followup 1 year after each SASS. The SASS provides data on the country's elementary and secondary teaching force, teacher supply and demand, teacher workplace conditions, school administrators, and school policies and practices. A major purpose of the survey is to provide reliable and comparable state-level statistics on school and educator characteristics. The 1993-94 SASS drew a stratified probability sample of approximately 13,000 schools (9,330 public and 3,500 private), 65,600 teachers (52,000 public and 13,000 private), and 5,600 public school districts. This report focuses on public schools, highlighting some state-by-state data to inform state and local educators of policy and program issues they face. Five appendixes provide state estimates from SASS, standard errors for tables, background information, data collection information, and definitions of terms used in the report. (Contains 73 tables and 92 figures.) (SLD)
