Summary

This is the 21st annual national survey of supply and demand for public school teachers. From September 1, 1967 to August 31, 1968, 243,442 persons entered this job market with at least a bachelor's degree. Two estimates of national demand are provided: (1) The estimated number of new teachers needed to attaim minimum levels of quality staffing in 1968 (301,300 in elementary and 198,350 in secondary schools); (2) the number needed in 1968-69, as projected from trends in the improvement of staffing characteristics in recent years (109,300 in elementary and 107,900 in secondary schools). The critical shortage of beginning teachers is expected to continue in secondary school mathematics and sciences. Shortages are likely in special education, vocational-technical courses, women's physical and health education, industrial arts, and elementary schools. Two special surveys of appropriate officials in State departments of education and in 79 of the nation's largest school systems show that shortages of qualified teachers are continuing in all of these assignments.
