Summary

The General Accounting Office (GAO) reviewed supply and demand conditions for elementary and secondary school teachers as well as federal assistance programs affecting teacher supply. Surveys over the past four years indicate that federal action has helped to alleviate the previous teacher shortage and may have contributed to the present surplus of teachers. GAO noted that: a) no central information source identifies federal education programs that affect the teaching profession; b) agencies lack adequate information about the effects of federal programs on the supply of new teachers; and c) complete data about supply and demand within the teaching profession is not available. GAO recommends that the Office of Education: a) maintain centralized data about all federal programs affecting teachers; b) continue cooperative efforts with the Bureau of Labor Statistics to develop a system for surveying the supply and demand for new college graduates in order to provide a basis for predicting future job market conditions; c) coordinate, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the dissemination of this job market information to all government agencies and higher education institutions; d) encourage the establishment of student counselling programs that include affective "job opportunities" components; and f) consider the feasibility of a program to retrain surplus teachers for existing teacher shortage areas.
