A Survey of Teacher Supply and Demand Data Collection Systems in NASDTEC Central Region States.
Roth, Robert A.
The Central Region States of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) were surveyed in 1980 regarding their systems for collecting information and their information needs on teacher supply and demand. The 13 states involved were Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The 17-item survey solicited information on the type of data states collected, areas of teacher education and placement that states were interested in, and methods of information collection. The data indicate that most states were experiencing teacher shortages in special education, science, mathematics, industrial arts, and agriculture. The predominant method of collecting information is through annual surveys of local districts on the status of their professional staff. Many states combine this information with data received from teacher training institutions and state records. Included in this report are tables summarizing the survey response and a copy of the survey instrument. (FG)
