Ohio Teacher Supply and Demand 1991.
Bowers, G. Robert
Teacher supply and demand in the public schools of Ohio depend on such factors as enrollment trends, subject-election patterns, staffing ratios, employment practices, turnover rates, and the number of graduates from teachers' colleges. Data contained in this report have been collected and maintained by the Ohio State Department of Education since 1976. Following an introduction, information is included on: (1) enrollment; (2) staffing and staffing ratios; (3) staff age and experience; (4) number of newly certified personnel; (5) status of Ohio teacher supply and demand; and (6) methodology. Appendixes include figures and tables showing: live births in Ohio; births and child-bearing cohort; public and nonpublic school enrollment in 13-year cohort; distribution of certified personnel; average age and experience of certified personnel; age and experience of certified personnel; number and percent of newly certified personnel and percent of entry-year teachers; and projections by teaching field. Although predictions suggest an impending teacher shortage, this document indicates that Ohio data do not confirm these predictions and that a teacher shortage in Ohio need not occur. (LL)
