NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Classroom teachers are teachers of self-contained classrooms; these teachers could teach arts areas as separate subjects or incorporate arts areas into other subjects. The data presented in this table may differ from previously published information because missing data from the 1999–2000 surveys were imputed for analysis in this report.
