Missouri defines a teacher as an instructor. That definition includes special education, remedial reading, Title I, and vocational teachers. Illinois’ definition of a teacher includes classroom teachers and teachers specializing in fine arts.

Indicator #26 in the 2009-10 CMSL. This statistic captures the number of births to mothers who were under 20 years of age.
