The Production and Utilization of Education Doctorates for Administrators in California's Public Schools. A Report in Response to Assembly Bill 1279. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The goal of this study was to describe the production and utilization of education doctorates in California public elementary and secondary education and to assess if there is a need for greater production of such degrees by higher education institutions in the state. An examination of relevant indicators and survey results revealed that, based on estimated supply and demand over the next decade, California will be able to maintain the current percentage of public school administrators who hold a doctorate. The number of doctorates in administrative positions has remained roughly constant over the last ten years (rising from 2,122 to 2,184), with California universities having produced approximately 450 doctorates per year. The stable number of doctorates employed is consistent with a retirement rate of about 100 doctorates per year and a rate of employment of new doctorates in the public schools of about 110 per year. A detailed analysis of supply and demand for education doctorates is included, along with a description of issues for further study and appendices containing numerous data tables and study materials.
