Murray, David R.
This report provides a general overview of the supply and demand of public school teachers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Both actual data for 1980-85 and projected estimates for 1986 to 1990 were provided. Intrinsic to the study was a comprehensive analysis of actual and projected enrollment trends; a close review of teacher availability; an exploration of the demand and supply relationships and related issues influencing current and future conditions in teacher education. Surpluses and shortages were identified for elementary education, special areas, and secondary education by teaching areas. Contingency plans for a possible teacher shortage are also discussed. Thirteen appendces include data on enrollments and on student teacher ratios for special subject areas; data on demand and new hires and supply versus demand by field and region; new teachers analysis; age distribution of Kentucky teachers by totals; and average teacher salaries in elementary, secondary and combined Kentucky schools.
