Abstract: One of the most important functions of the state is the education and training of its young people. For a successful state program of education it is necessary to have an adequate supply of well trained teachers. Just as it is important to have enough teachers to meet the demand, so is it important that an oversupply of teachers should not exist. For teacher-training institutions to train teachers when there will be no positions for the teacher after the training period is completed is an economic and social waste--an expense to society and a loss to the individual. The proper adjustment of demand and supply of teachers, therefore, is a major responsibility of the state and is of direct concern to the teacher-training institutions of the state. It is evident from a study of the history of education in this country that there have been recurring periods of "shortage" and of "surplus" in the supply of teachers available for work in the American schools. Chapter II discusses some of the important studies that have been made concerning the demand and supply of teachers in various areas and on various levels.
