A Report on Follow-Up of Graduates Who Completed Preparation for Initial Entry into Classroom Teaching. (Graduate Placement Report), 1978-79.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Teacher Preparation and Certification Services.
Data presented in this document are primarily from the 1978-79 Graduate Placement Report with additional information from the 1977-78 Report and the Michigan Teacher Supply and Demand Interim Report 1980. The Graduate Placement Report provides information on the employment status of 4,619 (72 percent) of the graduates who completed programs at 30 Michigan teacher education institutions and received provisional teaching certificates from July 1978 to June 1979. In a discussion of the findings it is shown that full-time teaching positions were held by 63 percent of the 1978-79 graduates. It is estimated that 11 percent of the graduates were seeking positions as of January 1980. Projections of teacher supply and demand by Michigan teacher education institutions, the National Center for Education Statistics, and the Association of School, College, and University Staffing indicate possible teacher shortages in the late 1980s. Appendices provide tables showing graduates by major preparation field, and categorized by race and sex in each institution. (FG)
