Teachers in Elementary and Secondary Education. Historical Report.
Center for Education Statistics (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
Information presented in this report is based on responses from school and district administrators to a survey of existing teacher demand and shortages in elementary and secondary schools during the 1983-84 school year. The survey instrument consisted of three parts, each of which collected a different type of data: (1) "head counts" for the number of positions offered and teachers hired (new versus continuing, certified versus noncertified) for the 1983-84 school year; (2) indications of the use of merit pay and incentive programs by schools and districts employing teachers; and (3) "full-time equivalent" figures on teacher employment, certification, and shortages, by specific teaching assignment (instructional level and subject). Data are presented on tables in two different formats. Estimates relating to part one (head counts) and data from part two (indicators) are shown by type of employing agency and geographical region, while data from part three (full-time equivalent figures by teaching assignment) are shown as national estimates by level and subject.
