These Web Tables focus on public school teachers in grades 9-12 who taught primarily career and technical education (CTE), academic, or other subjects during the 2007-08 school year. CTE teachers are grouped based on their main subject area: nonoccupational CTE, including family and consumer sciences education and general labor market preparation, and occupational education. Occupational education includes 10 broad areas: agriculture and natural resources; business; communications and design; computer and information sciences; construction, architecture, and engineering technologies; consumer, culinary, and public services; health sciences; manufacturing; marketing; and repair and transportation. CTE, academic, and other public high school teachers are examined by their demographic and professional characteristics, the location and types of schools in which they taught, characteristics of their students, and primary subject area. Table 1 presents the distribution of teachers who taught primarily CTE, academic, or other subjects, by selected school characteristics. Table 2 displays the occupational education fields in which CTE teachers taught. Table 3 shows teachers' average number of years of teaching experience, and the distribution of their years of experience, by school type and main teaching assignment. Table 4 focuses on teachers' average class size, by school type and main teaching assignment. Table 5 summarizes the extent to which teachers participated in professional development, by school type and main teaching assignment. Tables 6 and 7 detail teachers' background characteristics including age, sex, and race/ethnicity, by school type and main teaching assignment. Tables 8 and 9 present information on teacher qualifications, including types of certification and educational attainment, by school type and main teaching assignment. A glossary is included. (Contains 18 tables and 1 endnote.)
