Schools and Staffing Survey, 1993-1994 [United States]: Teacher Follow-Up Survey, 1994-1995, Revised Version (ICPSR 2763)

Principal Investigator(s):


This data collection is a one-year follow-up of a sample of teachers who responded to the Teacher Questionnaire in the SCHOOLS AND STAFFING SURVEY, 1993-1994 [UNITED STATES]: REVISED VERSION (ICPSR 2748). The Teacher Follow-Up Survey was designed to update data on teacher career patterns and plans and to determine attrition rates. It queried a subsample of teachers who were in the profession during the school year 1993-1994 and has two components: teachers who left the teaching profession between the school years 1993-1994 and 1994-1995 (leavers) and teachers who remained in the profession (stayers). Information in this collection is given separately for public school teachers (Part 1) and private school teachers (Part 2). Questions were asked on topics such as current activity, occupation, career patterns, educational pursuits, future plans, attitudes toward the teaching profession, and overall job satisfaction.
