Teacher and School Administrator: Supply and Demand.
Metz, A. Stafford
This report, mandated by the Education Amendments of 1976, presents information on the demand for and availability of qualified teachers and administrative personnel and relates these findings to Office of Education (OE) teacher training programs. Two sample surveys provide data for this report: the Survey of Recent College Graduates (RCGS) conducted in spring 1976 of 1974-75 graduates and the Local Education Agency (LEA) survey of Teacher and Administrator Shortages conducted in fall 1977. The RCGS collected data on teacher supply (number of graduates newly qualified to teach, by field), and on teacher demand (number hired as teachers) from a sample of about 5,000 graduates of 209 colleges and universities. The LEAs collected data on teacher and administrator shortages (number sought but not hired because qualified candidates were unavailable) and on fields for which there is expected to be an emerging or growing demand for teachers or administrators from a sample of about 500 school districts. Appendix A presents additional detailed information on the OE teacher training programs. Appendix B contains descriptions of the surveys and estimates of sampling errors. (Author/MLF)
