Demand and Supply of Minority Teachers. ERIC Digest 12-88.
Otuya, Ebo, Jr.
It is pointed out in this Digest that there is an imbalance between the number of Black, Hispanic, Asian and Native American teachers and the percentage of children of similar ethnic backgrounds in the schools. The growing minority student enrollment in public schools has increased the demand for proportional minority teacher representation. Factors contributing to shortages of minority teachers are discussed. References in the ERIC database are cited. (JD)
