Projections of Public School Classroom Teachers: New York State 1989-90 to 1993-94.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
This publication presents projections of classroom teaching positions in Grades K-12 for regular day public schools in New York State for the years 1989-1994. Two basic assumptions underly the projections: (1) the numbers of teachers in all subject areas in the base year 1988-89 were adequate to meet the educational needs of the public schools of the state; and (2) the number of teachers needed is largely determined by the number of students enrolled. The report is organized into three sections, each consisting of three tables. Tables 1-3 display statistics on the classroom teaching force, actual (1985-90) and projected (1989-94); classroom teacher vacancies, actual and projected; and vacancies to be filled by new teachers, actual and projected, for the total state. The same projections are shown in tables 4-6 for the New York City public schools, and for the state exclusive of New York City in tables 7-9. Two appendixes describe methodology, and a third appendix includes the number of provisional teaching certificates issued in selected years from 1968 to 1988. (LL)
