Teacher Supply and Demand in Public Schools, 1972.
Graybeal, William S.
This 25th annual NEA survey of public school teacher supply and demand estimates that the supply of qualified teachers is generally adequate, although shortages exist in some areas. To supplement these estimates, surveys were made in State departments of education and in 71 of the country's 80 largest school systems. Shortages occurred in industrial arts, special education, trade-industrial-vocational courses, mathematics, remedial reading, speech, and in distributive education. Assignments most frequently reported by the large school systems as having an oversupply of qualified applicants include social studies, Language Arts, physical and health education (male teachers), elementary level, foreign languages, art, business education, and home economics. Tables present comparative data by State and by subject area. A related document is EA 004 438. (MLF)
