This 13th annual survey examined teacher and school administrator supply, employment opportunities, and differences by region and school district size. Questionnaires were sent to the Kansas Unified School District superintendents; nonrespondents were surveyed by telephone. Usable results came from all school districts. For special educators, data were sought about vacancies not included. Results of a survey of teacher employment opportunities in Kansas are reported. Data on postions in elementary and secondary schools, administration, and special education were tabulated. The following questions were addressed: (1) Is there an adequate supply of teachers in Kansas? (2) What teaching areas will provide graduates the best employment opportunities?Author: Jack D. Skillett.   On Septem the Learning Policy Institute (LPI) released a report on teacher supply and demand that examines the data behind shortages that are emerging in a number of areas around the country. Our goal was simple: to clarify the nature of emerging shortages and their impact, and to offer evidence-based strategies to guide the responses of educators and policymakers.   Let’s stop ignoring basic economic principles of supply and demand and focus on how we can establish a performance-driven culture in every American school—a culture that rewards excellence, elevates the status of teachers and is positioned to help .

Supply is the amount of goods available, and demand is how badly people want a good or service. Factors like seasons and popularity affect supply and demand, and prices can change with changes in. For the past ten years, the supply of public elementary and secondary school teachers has grown. Currently, the number of teachers in the United States is estimated to be million, 2,, of whom are teaching in public elementary and secondary schools (Snyder, ). School districts across the country are reporting difficulties in hiring high-quality teachers, and states are being asked to respond. Our new slide deck, "Teacher Supply and Demand: How States Track Shortage Areas," surveys the landscape of how states track information on teacher supply and demand. Another supply side mechanism used to equilibrate teacher supply and demand is to offer financial incentives for teachers to enter and continue in the profession, i.e., to enhance teacher supply. Some of these incentives entail bonuses offered to teachers in shortage teaching fields, such as bilingual education, and at shortage locations, such.
