Total enrollments in Iowa public schools, K-12, have declined. Total enrollments have declined by 130,116 students in ten years. The projected enrollments are expected to drop 31,444 students in the next five years. Obviously the implication is a reduction in the number of teaching positions at both the elementary and secondary levels over the next several years. However, current data indicate that the science and math teacher supply is decreasing more rapidly than student enrollment.
