Minority Disproportionality in Higher Education with an Emphasis on Teacher Preparation.
Smith, Albert J., Jr.
Minorities constitute only 4.4 percent of all teaching certificate earners in the state of Washington, a proportion somewhat smaller than that for minority baccalaureate degree recipients and considerably smaller than that of minority school children. At a time when Washington State's minority student population is increasing at a signficantly greater rate than the majority white student population, minorities are underrepresented among students completing requirements for baccalaureate degrees in education and for teaching certificates. Part 1 of this report examines this underrepresentation for the years 1982-84. Part 2 examines minority representation in degree completions in all degree areas. This study is designed to be used as a reference for developing policy or program decisions addressing minority representation in teacher preparation programs and other degree areas in higher education. Related literature was reviewed and is presented, and conclusions and recommendations are included. The study data is displayed in 20 tables and 27 footnotes are also provided. (JD)
