Teacher and Administrator Supply and Demand for the Southeast.
Schaerer, John W.; And Others
This publication reports on a study of the education job market in 1,667 public school systems in 11 southeastern states. Questionnaires were completed and returned by 544 public school systems, representing a 32.6 percent return rate. The questionnaire looked at 42 teaching fields and 32 administrative areas in the school year 1996-97; historical employment opportunities for teachers and administrators and opportunities for 1996-97 compared to 1995-96; the number of minority candidates; and perceptions concerning influence factors relative to teacher and administrator supply/demand at the local and state levels. Supply/demand data for teachers relative to 49 teaching areas and the 32 administrative areas are provided for each state. The data revealed that teacher supply and demand showed essentially the same configuration when comparing 1996-97 with 1995-96. The teaching fields showed greater variation in supply and demand than the administrative areas. However, individual state profiles depicted significant changes in perceptions about teaching fields and administrative areas. Mississippi appeared to have the greatest demand among the 49 teaching fields and the 32 administrative areas; Louisiana appeared to be somewhat in the same condition. Kentucky data, particularly for 1996-97, suggested employment opportunities were greater than most states regarding both teaching and administrative positions. The data are displayed in 33 figures.
