Supply and Demand for Teachers of Vocational Agriculture in 1971. A Staff Study.
Woodin, Ralph J.
To assist in a national recruitment effort, this seventh annual report contains information secured from questionnaires completed by head state supervisors and teacher educators in all institutions preparing teachers of vocational agriculture. Data contained in the report pertain to: (1) number of vocational agriculture positions in the U.S. in 1971, (2) the percentage of graduates entering various occupations, (3) enrollment in colleges of agriculture, (4) types of teaching positions, (5) placement of graduates, (6) employment by states and regions, and (7) a 7-year comparison of selected information on supply and demand of vocational agriculture teachers. Major findings revealed that the number of qualified teachers increased to 1,743, the largest number qualified in any of the past 7 years, but the number of persons entering teaching decreased. Over the past 7 years, the number of teaching positions has stabilized at 10,500, although supervisors predict 11,977 positions by 1975. In terms of teaching positions, 92 percent of all positions were in general or comprehensive high schools and only 3.2 percent were employed in area vocational schools. Nearly two-thirds of the positions involved teaching adults and young farmers as well as high school students. Also available are reports for 1969 (ED 037 563) and 1970 (VT 012 386 in this issue).
