Math and Science: Where Are the Teachers? A Resource Guide for Citizens, Educators, School Boards, and Policymakers.
Conway, Mary M.
This report was developed as an outcome of a conference held in April 1983 by the Council for Basic Education. It concentrated on existing and proposed solutions to the shortages of qualified mathematics and science teachers and on technological concerns. It includes suggestions proposed by participants as well as additional recommendations made by educators and others interested in improving basic education who were consulted after the conference. This compendium of approaches is intended to be used as a resource directory by school administrators and other educators. The first section provides an overview of the extent of the problem. The next section is a compilation of proposed solutions for improving the quality of teaching and is followed by examples of specific programs. In the third section, issues and potential models are described. A summary and a directory of resources are included. (MNS)
