Secondary Level Teachers: Supply and Demand in Botswana.
Hanson, John W.
This is one of 14 country studies which together with a final volume of summary and analysis will comprise a comprehensive Report on the Supply of Secondary Level Teachers in English-Speaking Africa. Each study is focused on the problem of determining the likely demand for overseas personnel for staffing secondary level institutions through 1975. Each gives a short description of the country's geographic, economic, and political situation; traces the development of secondary education and makes projections for the future; assesses the present and future supply of secondary level teachers in each field; and draws conclusions as to the resulting demand for expatriate secondary level teachers. A final chapter draws implications and makes recommendations for long-range planning. The Botswana study focuses on decisions the country must make with respect to the priority to be given to producing secondary level teachers as opposed to government personnel, and the type of relationship to be sought between education and an agricultural and pastoral way of life. (Other studies in the series are SP 004 605 - SP 004 607 and SP 004 609 - SP 004 612.) (RT)
