Teacher Supply and Demand in Wisconsin, 1970-1980.
Wisconsin Coordinating Committee for Higher Education, Madison.
The first half of this document examines the national supply and demand of teachers, while the second half is concerned with the situation in Wisconsin. The change from the teacher shortage of the 1960's to the surplus of the 1970's is traced and explained, and the continued shortage in certain fields, such as industrial arts, special education, mathematics, trade and vocational, natural and physical science, women's physical education, remedial reading, speech correction, library science, and elementary education, is noted. It is suggested that the teacher surplus would not exist if all schools were operating fully to meet the educational needs of all children. Data are included on the numbers of elementary and secondary teachers between 1959 and 1970, on projected demand through 1980, and on school population and teacher qualifications. The chapters on Wisconsin analyze the teacher supply and demand picture on the basis of information obtained from a survey of college placement officers, school district administrators, and education deans and department chairmen of Wisconsin colleges and universities engaged in teacher preparation. Eleven implications are included which summarize the present situation and suggest future directions for teacher education institutions and their students. (MBM)
