Methodology

This report shows counts of teachers employed in Texas public school districts by subject area (e.g. Science, Social Studies, Mathematics) for statewide for a series of years. A person teaching multiple subject areas will be counted multiple times. For example, a person may teach a math class and a science class. This person would be counted once in each subject area.

Beginning with the 2007-08 school year this report no longer includes staff employed by Education Service Centers.
