The Supply and Demand for Beginning Teachers, Past, Present, and Future.
Current conditions in the labor market for trained education personnel are reviewed in this paper. It is based on data from a two year inquiry into American teacher education, a review of the existing literature on teacher education, and discussions with educators and contributors to the field. The paper is organized into three sections. The first section discusses the characteristics of supply, demand, and surplus in the present market for teachers and identifies some of the major variables that have been associated with the current labor market. The second section discusses the current and projected responses of the nation's schools, colleges, and departments of education to current imbalances in this market. The third section discusses the factors that influence students in their choices of teacher training programs and in their eventual behavior in the labor markets. (Author/JD)
