Teacher Supply and Demand in Michigan and the United States--1990.
Scheetz, L. Patrick; Carsley, Michael
The number of new teachers prepared each year since 1985-1986 has increased, but new teachers hired by Michigan public schools has decreased. This bulletin provides succinct information on teacher supply and demand in Michigan with comparative tables on data for the United States. Charts and graphs depict data on: (1) new teachers prepared and employed; (2) public school enrollment statistics; (3) projected demand for new teachers; (4) demographics--births and projected enrollments; (5) teacher retirements; (6) demand for academic majors, minority teachers, and master's degree candidates; (7) other factors influencing hiring, such as size of school district and geographical location; and (8) teacher salaries. Recommendations for new teachers include: broadening geographical considerations; developing additional endorsements on the teaching certificate; agreeing to supervise several extra-curricular activities; and extending coaching options.
