Oklahoma Study of Educator Supply and Demand: Trends and Predictions
In June 2014, the Oklahoma State Regents of Higher Education commissioned American Institutes for Research to conduct a study to better understand both historical and future-predicted trends of educator supply and demand across Oklahoma. OSRHE commissioned the study in partnership with the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation, the Oklahoma State Department of Education and the Oklahoma Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. The study was to include primarily an examination of how patterns of supply and demand vary by teaching subject area and geographic location.
The representatives of all of these agencies wanted the study to address a total of 15 research questions. AIR addressed these research questions through a series of five separate analyses. These analyses include the following:
- Analysis 1: Trends in the educator pipeline
- Analysis 2: Trends in educator certification
- Analysis 3: Trends in educator mobility
- Analysis 4: Future projections
- Analysis 5: Additional analyses
The results of these analyses are contained within this report, released in September 2015, and the accompanying interactive data tables and charts.
