Supply and Demand for Teachers of Vocational Agriculture in 1970.
Woodin, Ralph J.
This annual study was conducted to determine the national supply and demand for teachers of vocational agriculture for purposes of planning a nationwide recruitment program. A questionnaire was completed and returned by head state supervisors and teacher educators in all institutions preparing teachers of vocational agriculture. The number of vocational agriculture teaching positions in the United States in 1970, the percentage of graduates entering various occupations, enrollment in colleges of agriculture, types of teaching positions, placement of graduates, teaching positions by states and regions, employment by states and regions, and a 6-year comparison of selected information on supply and demand of teachers in vocational agriculture are all contained in the report. A 70 percent gain in teacher supply is shown for a 6 year period, with 1,700 persons qualified for teaching vocational agriculture in the United States in 1970. The study concludes that a goal of qualifying 1,800 persons each year is a realistic one. This study should be useful to agricultural supervisors and teachers for preparing recruitment programs. Also available are reports for 1969 (ED 037 563) and 1971 (VT 014 574 in this issue). (GEB)
