Teacher Supply/Demand. How Preparation Affects Employment Opportunities for Teachers in Today's Job Market.
Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute.
An analysis of the job market for teachers indicates that the average candidate's ability to find a job will be influenced by his geographic preference and his subject area specialization. Geographically, the greatest opportunity is in areas of high population concentration. Certain subjects, such as science and mathematics, have a high demand for teachers, but in other subjects, prospective teachers should improve their chances by broadening their competencies and obtaining certification in several areas. For example, speech, journalism or foreign language majors might also become certified in English. (Two tables estimate supply and demand for each subject and suggest advantageous combinations of subject specialization.) (RT)
