Teacher Supply & Demand in Michigan and the United States.
Scheetz, L. Patrick; Slade, Katie
This study examines the tight job market for teachers and other education professionals in Michigan and the United States. Expanding employment possibilities can be achieved by an awareness of market trends and a willingness to be flexible. Flexibility includes broadening one's scope, developing expertise in high demand subject areas, expanding geographical considerations and being willing to relocate to regions undergoing teacher shortages, seeking employment in private or parochial schools, extending coaching options, and willingness to supervise extracurricular activities. A series of tables display U.S. and/or Michigan public school statistics including: the number of teachers prepared and employed in Michigan; enrollment figures; new births by year; new retirements; new hires; anticipated employment of classroom teachers; teacher and other professional staff changes by gender and racial/ethnic origin; average salary of classroom teachers 1990-91; high demand subject areas; qualities desired in recent graduates; and percentage changes in public school enrollment from fall 1985 to fall 1990.
