The Market for Teachers in the Nation and the Southern Region.
Padilla, Arthur H.
This report presents regional information concerning projections of post-high school level labor force supply and demand, and assessments of supply, demand, and educational considerations pertaining to particular professional fields of current concern. The study looks first at the national situation, and then narrows its focus to the U.S. South. It concludes that if college students continue to choose educational careers at the current rate, the labor force will be unable to absorb the demand, and the students will have to look elsewhere for employment. The report offers several regional policy directions including transmitting information to college students on the staffing outlook in the teaching profession, and suggesting that higher education institutions consider the concept of "career alternatives" which would prepare students for two or more career options. The report includes statistical tables analyzing the current classroom teacher demand, future projections, and a reference list. (JS)
