Teacher Education Pipeline II: Schools, Colleges, and Departments of Education Enrollments by Race and Ethnicity.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
The primary purpose of this survey was to identify the numbers of students in the teacher education pipeline by race and ethnicity. It provides a means of assessing the need for teachers of color at the K-12 level; the potential pool of minority teachers in the postsecondary sector; and prospects for beginning teachers in schools, colleges, and departments of education (SCDE) enrollments. Usable responses were received from 685 SCDEs for a response rate of 57 percent, and additional data were gathered from federal government sources. The goal of the study was to aid in increasing the diminishing supply of Black, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American teachers. The report is organized in three sections. Section 1 highlights key points regarding the growth and diversity of the nation's K-12 and postsecondary sectors. It also offers national summary data on SCDE enrollments by race/ethnicity, institutional type, and academic field. Section 2 provides regional profiles (Northeast, Southeast, Central, and Western) of predicted growth in elementary and secondary school enrollment, and the diversity of postsecondary and SCDE enrollments. Section 3 provides state SCDE enrollment figures by race/ethnicity and specialty area (early childhood, elementary, secondary, special, bilingual, and vocational education) and level (baccalaureate, postbaccalaureate, and doctoral.)
