Schools and Staffing Survey data on public school teachers from 1987-88, 1990-91, and 1999-2000 were analyzed, indicating no increase in diversity. The number of males decreased, urban and high-minority enrollment schools had more racially diverse teachers but less gender diversity; diversity of newly hired teachers increased, but they were most likely to leave. There was significant variation among states. (Contains 27 references.) (SK)
