Study of the Availability of Teachers for Texas Public Schools. Staff Report to the State Board of Education, February 10, 1984. Revised.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The Texas Education Agency completed its first study of the "Availability of Teachers for Texas Public Schools" in November 1982. That report contained an analysis of data from a variety of sources and concerned past staffing practices and the current and future status of teacher supply and demand. This study builds on the November 1982 Teacher Availability Report by updating that information. This study is divided into four focused investigations including: (1) current and historic staffing practices as reflected through analysis of available data in the Texas Education Agency for school years 1979-80 through 1980-83; (2) current and projected status of teacher availability and related issues reported by school districts in a statewide survey; (3) current and projected status of teacher supply and related issues reported by teacher educators from 63 Texas teacher education institutions; and (4) short-term and long-range projections of teacher supply and demand. Appendices include: the Teacher Availability District Survey; a questionnaire for teacher education institutions; a copy of Senate Bill 50; and an abstract of proposed 19 TAC Chapter 75. Thirty tables and four figures are also included. (JMK)
