Alabama Teacher Supply-Demand for 1983-1984.
Stanford, Ronnie L.; Zoellner, Willita S.
In January 1983, each of Alabama's 128 school system superintendents was sent a questionnaire requesting an estimate of that system's employment needs, by certification area, for the 1983-84 school year. Questionnaires submitted to teacher education institutions in Alabama requested information on the number of students completing student teaching during the 1982-83 academic year. A response rate of 69 percent from the school systems and 92 percent of the education institutions was achieved. Resulting data are presented in the form of tables which list the number of: (1) projected vacancies for 80 school systems; (2) extrapolated vacancies for 128 school systems; (3) student teachers graduating from Alabama institutions; and (4) projected over- and under-supply for all areas of certification in elementary and secondary schools. Certification areas noted to be of greatest under-supply included elementary education, mathematics, learning disabled, gifted and talented, chemistry, and physics. (JD)
