Annotation

Article is about professional and social activity of teachers of city schools in post-reform provincial Tambov. A role of city schools in the second half of XIX-the beginning of XX century is difficult to overestimate.

It is clear that social and professional properties of teaching structure characterized effectiveness of educational institutions. Being based on such multidimensional statistical source as «Reports of the Tambov town council» from 1883 to 1907, authors succeeded to make the database displaying information on quantitative and social characteristics of this professional group (number of teachers in separate school, a surname, a name, a middle name, class accessory, occupation of the father or spouse (for teachers), education, the teacher's rank, year of definition on service managing school). So, the prevailing estate among a teaching was the clergy and the nobility which objectively had the best possibilities of education. The Tambov teaching (also as well as across all Russian Empire) was one of the few professions where the considerable share was women. By the beginning of the XX century the city teaching had the society of mutual aid, issued the specialized magazine. Thus, at the beginning of the XX century the teacher's environment represented the developed professional community.
