  • 9. The data we are sharing about the demand for educatorsby certification area are the composite national results.These national data may mask variations in the demandfor educators in specific states or regions.Generally, however, the national data reflect regionalneeds as well.ExampleNational average for Bilingual Education: 3.98Region 5 average for Bilingual Education: 4.22
  • 10. The greatest surplus of teachers:Elementary EducationPrimaryKindergartenIntermediateSocial StudiesPhysical EducationNote: Because of the EC-4 certification area in TX,Pre-K has a large surplus.No need for Earth Science teachers in MA: Thegeneral science certification takes care of that area.
  • 11. Other areas with some surplus ofteachers:ArtEnglishHealth EducationElementary EducationPre-KMiddle SchoolJournalismTheater / DramaNote: Theater/Drama not an area of surplusin CO
  • 12. Factors leading to a surplus of teachers:Todd In Colorado the following have created a surplus of teachers inmost areas: School funding issues creating fewer new positions and some school districts having to downsize. Housing market-foreclosures and less new growth. Retirees not retiring because of economy. People with teaching degrees returning to profession or people seeking alternative licensure because of economy. Teachers moving to or back to CO because of economy in other states, and other states not hiring so teachers not leaving. Too many teachers in a content area or an area with very few positions.
  • 13. Factors leading to a surplus of teachers:Carrie In addition to what Todd has indicated, in Texas The decrease in property taxes has resulted in fewer local dollars being available to school districts to hire and/or add new teachers, a school funding issue. Because stimulus money is being phased out, school districts will be increasing the student/teacher ratio, therefore, reducing their teaching force and putting more teachers out of work if they cannot be absorbed into positions being vacated. The Texas legislature, which convened this month, is considering increasing the current 22:1 elementary ratio that is in effect. In some cases, university students are not aware of how saturated the market is in certain areas.
  • 14. Factors leading to a surplus of teachers:Mark In Massachusetts, an additional factor is the customer issue,especially in Early Childhood Education and ElementaryEducation - many young adults want to be an elementaryteacher and go to school specifically for that teaching area.After graduation, the reality of the competitive job market hits.We really encourage the elementary and early childhoodeducation student to become dually licensed especially in ESLor special education.
