Teacher Supply and Demand in Public Schools, 1970.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This twenty-third annual NEA survey of public school teacher supply and demand estimates that the supply of qualified teachers is adequate. To supplement these estimates, special surveys were made in State departments of education and in the nation's 67 largest school systems to assess teacher supply and demand in various types of school systems. By late summer 1970, most States had reported shortages of applicants in some areas and excesses in others. Shortages occurred in elementary school librarians, special education, industrial arts, remedial reading, speech correction, mathematics, and women's physical and health education. As a result of the record size of the graduating class, only five States reported having a smaller number of qualified teacher applicants. Tables present comparative data by State and subject area.
