The Need for and Sources of Teachers in Vocationally Reimbursed Positions in Minnesota.
Copa, George; Korpi, Robert W.
The report presents the results of a project in the research program area of teacher education conducted by the Minnesota Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational Education. The specific objectives of this project were to: (1) provide an estimate for future need for teachers in vocationally reimbursed teaching positions in Minnesota, and (2) identify and describe the relative size of sources of teachers in these positions. Conduct of the study was accomplished in two phases. The first phase employed the Delphi technique with a group of experts and the second phase involved sampling schools having vocational education programs with vocationally reimbursed positions. The findings show: (1) a need for approximately 370 new teachers each year over the next five years, (2) the estimated average annual total number of full-time teachers in vocationally reimbursed positions over the next five years will be approximately 4,750, (3) a number of reimbursed teachers in new program levels will be added in the next five years, and (4) each program area has a large number of part-time teachers for adult programs. Summary data on future demand and average annual growth or decline of teachers, and summary data on factors affecting the supply of teachers is appended. (Author/KB)
