The supply and demand of elementary and secondary school teachers in the United States by Said Yasin( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Digest examines U.S. teacher supply and demand, including projections for the next 10 years. For the past 10 years, the supply of public elementary and secondary school teachers has grown. Currently, the number of teachers in the United States is 3.1 million, 2,666,034 of whom teach in public schools. The number is projected to increase by 1.1 percent annually to a total of 3.46 million by 2008. The projected demand for teachers may outpace the projected growth in the supply. Some researchers estimate that districts will have to hire 200,000 teachers annually over the next decade to keep pace with rising student enrollments and teacher retirements. Other researchers note that shortages are limited to particular regions and communities. Urban and poor communities will have the greatest need for teachers. Most teachers are female and white, while 35 percent of their students are minorities. From 1989-1995, enrollment in teacher education institutions increased by 5.5 percent. The largest increases occurred among Asian/Pacific and Hispanic Americans. Most students in teaching schools and colleges were white and female. The distribution of teachers across states and regions is uneven. Some states typically produce more teachers than they need while others need more than they produce. This maldistribution also exists within states, partly due to salary discrepancies. (Contains 8 references.) (SM)
An overview of the preparation and certification of teachers working with Limited English Proficient (LEP) students by Kate Menken( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study combined survey data with qualitative analysis to explore the preservice preparation of teachers of English language learners (ELLs). The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education disseminated surveys to member institutions and Web site users, examining the breadth and depth of preparation programs for such teachers. The National Clearinghouse for Bilingual Education compared survey findings to its analysis of both state level bilingual education teacher licensure requirements and the content of courses required by institutions for degrees/licensure in bilingual education. Licensure and course requirements were categorized by areas of knowledge, revealing that while typically emphasizing the areas of pedagogy and cultural/linguistic diversity, linguistics received less emphasis at both state and institutional levels. There was great variance in how states mandated requirements for bilingual education teacher licensure, though state requirements did impact institutions' programming. Programs varied in the depth of their coverage of areas of knowledge, with bachelor's programs more likely to cover studies within an area of knowledge through a broad overview or survey course combining various topics within one course. Very few higher education institutions offered programs that specifically prepared bilingual education teachers. Even fewer required preparation for mainstream teacher regarding ELL education
