Projections of Public School Classroom Teachers: New York State 1992-93 to 1996-97.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
This report presents projections of classroom teaching positions in kindergarten through grade 12 for regular public schools in New York State. Two basic assumptions underlying the projections of classroom teachers needed for 1992-93 through 1996-97 were: (1) the numbers of teachers in all subject areas in the base year, 1991-92, were adequate to meet the educational needs of the public schools of the State; and (2) the number of teachers needed is largely determined by the number of students enrolled. No assumptions were made concerning future economic, social, or political conditions which might impact on need for teachers. The document is organized into three sections, each consisting of three tables. Tables 1-3 display projections of the classroom teaching force, classroom teacher vacancies, and vacancies to be filled by new teachers through 1995-97 for the whole State. The same projections are shown for the New York City public schools in tables 4-6 and for the State, exclusive of New York City, in tables 7-9. A complete description of the methodology is included in appendices A and B; the number of provisional teaching certificates issued in major subject areas from 1970 to 1991 is furnished in appendix C.
