I'm researching job market trends for K12 engineering teachers around the US. Do you recommend any resources to consult?
Overall I'm researching the questions: "How has the demand for engineering teachers changed over time?", "What types of schools are seeing the biggest demand?", and "Do engineering teachers face a welcoming job market?".   I intend to bring up some of this topics in an episode of a new podcast dedicated to K12 engineering education ("The K12 Engineering Education Podcast").  I'm open to contacting people who are experts in this and to researching relevant databases.  So far I'm aware of statistics from private job-finding companies going back a few years, but it's a very limited snapshot of the job market.  Does anyone know who or what might have more information on this?  Thanks!

    If you'd like I can connect you to someone in the NAE with that information.

    I'd be interesting in learning what you find out!  I'm an engineering educator asking myself the same question about how the K-12 job market for engineering teachers is changing.  I'll be sure to listen to your upcoming podcast!

    Hello Prius, I saw your e-mail you carbon copied to me. I'm glad that you got in touch with Beth because she is the person to answer that question.
