Teacher Education Pipeline III: Schools, Colleges, and Departments of Education Enrollments by Race, Ethnicity, and Gender.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This report provides a general description of the status of a multicultural teaching force; it identifies enrollment numbers of students in the teacher education pipeline by race/ethnicity and gender. The pipeline survey 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 712 institutions for a response rate of 60 percent. 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 offers national summary data on SCDE enrollments by race/ethnicity and gender, institutional type, and academic field. Section 2 provides regional profiles (Northeast, Southeast, Central, and Western) in elementary and secondary school enrollment, and the diversity of SCDE enrollments. Section 3 provides state SCDE enrollment figures by race/ethnicity, gender, and specialty area (early childhood, elementary, secondary, special, bilingual, and vocational education) and level (baccalaureate, postbaccalaureate, and doctoral). Data are graphically displayed in 50 tables. Technical notes, response rates, and a copy of the survey instrument are appended. (LL)
