Teacher Supply and Demand in Public Schools, 1969.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
This national survey is broken down into four main sections: 1) supply of new teachers; 2) demand for new teachers; 3) supply compared with demand for new teachers; 4) education completed by public school teachers. In the first section statistics are given for education majors graduated in each subject field and in each state. The number of new graduates going into teaching and the number and career choice of those not going into teaching is given. The second section outlines the criteria for estimating demand for "new teachers" (those who have taught before but not in the previous academic year) and "beginning teachers" (those who have never taught). It then presents statistics on the demand for these two types of teachers according to subject field and state. The third section compares supply with demand and develops statistics on trends in each subject field and in each state. The fourth section compares the educational background of elementary and secondary school teachers in different subject fields and states. As a supplement to the main part of the report, a special section presents the results of a survey of state departments of education and the nation's 76 largest school systems which asked for general impressions of the current status of teacher supply and demand in that area.
