BABY BOOM AFTERMATH
Teaching: No vacancy
WASHINGTON UP') - T h e
World War II baby boom has
passed through the nation's
public schools, leaving in i t s
wake the worst job market for
teachers since the Depression..
No relief is in sight for t he
next decade, according to the
National Education Association
(NEA), which predicts that the
teacher surplus will double by
Unless new jobs are created,
the association said in a pri-
vate memorandum to its staff,.
overproduction of teachers will
reach 100,000 to 150,000 an-
nually. And each year 15,000 to
35,000 experienced teachers who
quit teaching want to return to
school jobs, officials of the edu-
cation association said.
The job picture is further
complicated by the fact that
financially pressed school dis-
tricts are cutting back on pro-
grams and the size of t h e i r
teaching staffs. In addition pro-
fessionals laid off by business
and industry and turning to the
field of education in search of
"The situation is completely
unlike anything we have faced
since the Great Depression of
the nineteen-thirties," the Re-
search Department of NEA said
in the memorandum.
"Not only beginning teachers
but persons with above-average
experience and qualifications
are unable even to find vacan-
cies for which to apply."
High school employment has
also been hit, but the full im-
pact of unemployment wil l
probably not reach that edu-

The job pinch is just begin-
ning to be felt at the college
level. The Cooperative College
Registry, originally formed to
find qualified instructors, now
finds its role changing - it is
looking for jobs.
Mrs. Elizabeth Fisher, execu-
tive director of the registry,
said that, of 6 139 persons with
doctorates who registered for
jobs, 34 per cent were still with-
out work last week. Fourteen of
those who found jobs are not
going into teaching.
"Many of these people a r e
having to settle for less," said
Mrs. Fisher. "They don't g e t
university-level jobs and have
to take jobs in junior colleges
and high schools and business.
In one case, a man began driv-
ing a taxi rather than teach at
a level below his degree,"
She said that the number of
persons with master's degrees
still seeking jobs for the start
of the school year was even
greater, but she had no figures
available of applicants and jobs.
Underscoring the bleak out-
look, Syracuse University's
School of Education sent the
following information in a let-
ter July 1 to its elementary
"Among our current graduat-
ing class, less than half have
positions for next year. It ap-
pears that at least a third of
our graduates will not be em-
ployed come September. T h e
situation among State Univer-
sity of New York graduates is
even worst; in June, less than
31 per cent of the Oswego,
Cortland and Potsdam graduat-
es had teaching positions."
As examples of the tight job
market in elementary schools,
the Syracuse letter noted that,
among area school districts, one
had 400 applicants for six
openings; another had m o r e
than 300 applicants for each
The situation is not confined
to New York or any other geo-
graphical area. Throughout the
United States, teachers a r e

the National Education Asso-

he had advised friends to look
for jobs in the mountains but

The letter from Syracuse's
School of Education concluded:
"Blame it on the pill or what-
ever, but the cause of all this
appears to be a reduction in the
"Give it some serious thought
before you get so far into the
program that it's impractical
to change," the letter warned its
elementary education students.
"We are fairly certain (that)
the situation that confronts us
will not go away overnight."
