Study on the Supply of and Demand for Teachers in Primary and Secondary Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This international survey is the "consolidated report," bringing out problems raised and the means adopted to overcome persistent disequilibrium between the supply and demand for teachers, based on eleven "country studies" describing the situation in selected member countries (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Yugoslavia) and making use of other types of documents for information on other member countries. The report includes discussion of main questions, interpretation of trends, and conclusions connected with the training, recruitment, and utilization of teachers. Part 1 is a diagnosis of the past (1950-65), present, and future quantitative balance between supply and demand. Part 2, on the basis of the more important questions previously raised, shows the various aspects of teacher recruitment and utilization policy which have been brought out by experience. Part 3, with a view to improving recruitment conditions and increasing the effectiveness of the education supplied, synthesizes the principal changes which have occurred in teacher training (for primary, secondary, and vocational technical teachers). Concluding sections focus on the role of the teaching professions in the development and utilization of highly skilled manpower, utilization of teachers and improving teaching efficiency, and framework of recruitment policy for teaching staff.
