The Supply and Demand for School Teachers in Connecticut.
Hyde, W. Lewis
The recent sudden reduction in the birthrate, following an earlier reduction in 1964-65, makes it clear that school enrollment will shrink steadily for the next 15 years. Demand for teachers in the state of Connecticut will decrease from about 2,300 per year to about 1,300 per year by 1980 and will continue to shrink the next 4 years to about 1,200 in 1984. Connecticut presently produces about 5,000 to 6,000 new teachers each year, and many who qualified in previous years are competing for the same jobs. Students are already turning away from the study of teaching, and enrollment will certainly drop 30-40 percent in the next 3 years, but the oversupply of new teachers will probably continue for many years.
