Teacher Shortage or Surplus: That Is the Question.
Recruitment Leadership and Training Inst., Philadelphia, PA.
This position paper discusses the question of teacher shortage or surplus and related issues. Informal surveys were conducted by the Recruitment Leadership and Training Institute (LTI) and other major educational organizations to provide a factual basis for the study. A review of the surveys conducted by LTI and a summary of published reports are presented. A chart depicting supply and demand for beginning teachers in public schools from 1952 to 1971 and projected to 1980 is included. Following the presentation of factual data, new ways of looking at supply and demand and recommendations are suggested. Recommendations concern preservice screening and training, inservice training and evaluation, and personal administration. A postscript indicating the availability of figures and a bibliography are included. (MJM)
