A Shortage of Science Teachers by 1982?
Hausman, Howard J.; Livermore, Arthur H.
The consequences of an aging teaching force in secondary school science during this decade are discussed. Statistics are provided for teacher production, teacher age distribution, declining enrollments in teacher education programs, and teacher demand. The major conclusion is that a science teacher shortage will occur in the next decade and that steps should be taken to expand teacher education programs to avoid this problem. (MH)
