Understanding Supply and Demand Among Mathematics and Science Teachers

Abstract

"In this chapter I will briefly summarize what the data tell us about the realities of school staffing problems and teacher shortages, especially for mathematics and science teachers. I will argue that the conventional wisdom on teacher shortages is largely a case of a wrong diagnosis and a wrong prescription and that while the above policy efforts are often worthwhile, the data show they will not solve the teacher staffing problems schools are facing."
