Abstract

This article considers long-standing grievances in teachers' labour markets regarding chronic shortages of qualified mathematics and science teachers and the loss of the best youth instructors from the teaching service. It first looks at evidence for the existence of chronic shortages of certain types of teachers. Secondly, it considers the major factors creating this situation. Finally, it asks what can reasonably be done to address these situations. Cross-sectional Australian data are used for evidence and there are supplemented, where appropriate, with pertinent overseas findings.
