The Status of School Psychology: Implications of a Major Personnel Shortage
Curtis, Michael J.; Hunley, Sawyer A.; Grier, Elizabeth Chesno
Psychology in the Schools, v41 n4 p431-442 Apr 2004
The findings of earlier studies are reviewed and results of analyses of recent data are reported in presenting an overview of the current and possible future status of school psychology in the United States. Recognizing that legislation could have major, but as yet unclear, implications for the field, projections suggest that school psychology is likely to face a severe personnel shortage over the next 10 years. Projections also indicate that serious, although less severe, shortages are likely to continue through at least 2020. Shortages are predicted to vary markedly by geographical region of the country and type of school setting. Potential implications of the shortage are examined for the public schools.
