Trends in Teacher Supply and Demand in Public Schools, 1973-1976.
Graybeal, William S.
This research report contains a descriptive analysis of tables on present and projected statistics of teacher supply and demand in the United States. Included are tables on enrollment in teacher education in 67 institutions, 1969-70 to 1972-73, by level; on graduates prepared to teach and graduates receiving the bachelor's and first professional degree, 1968 to 1972, and projections to 1976; and on the projected supply and demand for beginning teachers in public schools, 1972 to 1976. It is indicated in this last table that if the projected number of teacher education graduates is realized and if the trends towards improved school staffing continue, there may be annual reductions in the oversupply of beginning teachers from 1974-75 on.
