Abstract: This survey is a followup to the Teacher Survey from SCHOOLS AND STAFFING SURVEY, 1990-1991: [UNITED STATES] (ICPSR 6313) and is the fifth component of the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS), conducted one year after the base-year data collection. The 1991-1992 Teacher Followup Survey (TFS), designed to update data on teacher career patterns and plans and to determine attrition rates, queried a subsample of teachers in the profession during the school year 1990-1991 and had two components: teachers who left the teaching profession between the school years 1990-1991 and 1991-1992 (former teachers) and teachers who remained in the profession (current teachers). For both groups, 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. Data are also available on teachers who remained in the teaching profession but moved to different schools (movers).
