Assessment of Data Sources Relevant to the Supply and Quality of Illinois Primary and Secondary Educators (December 2002)

James M. Wilson

In November 2001 the Illinois Education Research Council received a grant from the Washington Mutual Foundation to assess the extent and usefulness of Illinois’ data systems for the study of teacher supply and demand. Data and Decision Analysis, Inc. was contracted to undertake a review of currently available data, identify data gaps, and suggest steps for moving forward. This report is in response to that charge.
