Computer Simulation of the Supply and Demand for Teachers in Michigan Public Schools.
Smith, Gary R.; Shallwani, Inayat
The application of a computer simulation of various aspects of the supply and demand for teaching personnel is illustrated with data in the public domain. In addition to several of the variables used in previous simulations of teacher supply and demand, two new features are introduced in this simulation model: a new mechanism for simulating the preservice teacher training component as it supplies new teaching personnel, and new alternatives for considering various categories of certified teachers who may remain in the pool of available teaching personnel for varying lengths of time. A sample computer program and histograms of simulation variable frequency distributions are included. (CMV)
