Woodin, Ralph J.
A fourth annual study of the supply and demand for teachers of vocational agriculture was conducted to determine: (1) the number of graduates qualified for teaching, (2) the number of graduates entering various teaching and non-teaching positions, (3) the number of teaching positions requiring replacement the previous years, (4) the number of teachers holding emergency or temporary certificates, (5) positions in new types of programs, and (6) an estimate of required teachers by the year 1970. Head state supervisors and teacher educators responded to a questionnaire in August 1968 to provide the necessary information. Some findings were: (1) 942 replacements were needed during the 1968-68 school year, (2) 141 teachers were needed but unavailable on August 1, 1968, (3) 65 departments were unable to operate in 1967-68 because of the teacher shortage, (4) The rate of turnover decreased 8.9 percent, (5) More teachers utilized temporary or emergency certificates in 1968, (6) 62 percent of the qualified total entered teaching, (7) Qualified agricultural education graduates increased from 1,038 in 1965 to 1,314 in 1968, (8) Teaching positions rose during the same period by 228, and (9) An increasing number of teachers were involved with new programs of vocational agriculture.
