Projected demographic changes have heightened interest in the staffing of public schools. These demographic shifts concern another round of growth in the school age population and a shift in its composition toward racial and ethnic minorities. As the "baby boom echo" passes through its school years, demand for public school staff has grown tremendously in many areas of the country (U.S. Department of Education, 1999, Area Schools, 1999, Struggling Schools, 1999).
