"Trends in California Teacher Demand: A County and Regional Perspective"
California’s demand for teachers over the next decade will not affect its diverse counties in uniform ways, says a report that adds a new twist to the debate about the growing need for teachers in the nation’s most populous state.
Using projections of teacher-retirement trends and changes in student enrollment, the authors identify which counties will face the biggest hiring squeezes by 2015-16.
Counties’ expected need for new hires ranged from 68 percent of their current workforce to just 4 percent.
Because other studies show that teachers prefer to teach close to where they grew up, California’s counties may need to consider individual strategies to recruit teachers from other areas of the state that will face a lesser demand for teachers, the study suggests.
