Lehrer in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Eine Kritische Analyse Statistischer Daten uber das Lehrpersonal an Allgemeinbildenden Schulen. (Education in the Federal Republic of Germany. A Statistical Study of Teachers in Schools of General Education.)
Kohler, Helmut
The purpose of this study was to analyze the available statistics concerning teachers in schools of general education in the Federal Republic of Germany. An analysis of the demographic structure of the pool of full-time teachers showed that in 1971 30 percent of the teachers were under age 30, and 50 percent were under age 35. It was expected that distribution in the teacher pool by age, sex, and social origin would correlate roughly with those factors over the whole population. However, marked differences were found in teacher density by age group. This was attributed to differences in preparation required for different types of schools. An analysis of net changes in the teacher pool from 1966 to 1970 was also undertaken. It showed that manpower replacement needs are currently low, but because of insufficient data it was difficult to predict future trends in this area. This analysis also indicated that teachers often do not teach subjects for which they have been trained. (Data on working conditions and salaries of teachers are presented and discussed in this report, and numerous tables are included.) (PB)
