Supply and Demand for Teachers of Vocational Agriculture in 1969.
Woodin, Ralph J.
A fifth 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 during the previous year, (4) the number of teachers holding emergency or temporary certificates, (5) positions in new types of programs, and (6) teachers needed by 1975. Head state supervisors and teacher educators responded to a questionnaire in August 1969. Some findings were: (1) A turnover of 11.2 percent required 1,181 teachers for replacements and for new teaching positions, (2) 121 teachers were needed but not available August 1, 1969, (3) 60 departments could not operate during the 1969-70 school year because of the teacher shortage, (4) 278 teachers taught with temporary or emergency teaching certificates, (5) positions in teaching increased from 10,606 to 11,157, (6) 1,566 teachers were qualified by 77 institutions, and (7) 891 of the qualified teachers assumed teaching positions. Five-year data nationally and by region is reported. This study updates the information in ED 028 272. (DM)
