Skillett, Jack D.; And Others
Results of a survey of teacher employment opportunities in Kansas are reported. Data on postions in elementary and secondary schools, administration, and special education were tabulated. The following questions were addressed: (1) Is there an adequate supply of teachers in Kansas? (2) What teaching areas will provide graduates the best employment opportunities? (3) What teaching areas will provide the fewest employment opportunities? (4) To what extent is there a surplus and/or shortage of teachers in various geographical regions of Kansas? and (5) Do employment opportunities vary due to the size of school districts in Kansas? Slight shortages in the supply of elementary and secondary candidates, and no shortage in administrative areas were found, whereas a substantial shortage of special education teachers was reported.
