EDUCATION IN THE STATES--A PLANNING CHART BOOK.
MEYER, AGNES E.
WITHIN THIS BOOKLET ARE TWENTY-FIVE CHARTS WHICH PRESENT ECONOMIC AND SOCIOLOGICAL DATA RELEVANT TO PUBLIC EDUCATION IN INDIVIDUAL CITIES AND STATES AND IN THE NATION AS A WHOLE. IN GENERAL, THE CHARTS FOCUS ON (1) THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION IN A SOCIETY WHICH IS EXPERIENCING ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL GROWTH, (2) THE NECESSITY OF EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS FOR NEW JOB REQUIREMENTS, (3) THE AVAILABILITY OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO CITY VERSUS SUBURBAN SCHOOLS, (4) CURRENT AND PREDICTED SCHOOL EXPENDITURES, AND (5) GOALS FOR EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. ACCORDING TO ONE CHART, MINIMUM EXTENSIONS FOR QUALITY EDUCATION IN THE SCHOOLS WILL COST 15 PERCENT MORE THAN THE SCHOOL EXPENDITURES ESTIMATED FOR 1970. AS INDICATED IN ANOTHER CHART, CURRENT EXPENDITURES PER STUDENT ARE GREATER IN SUBURBAN THAN IN CENTRAL CITY AREAS, AND THUS EQUALITY OF EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY IS DENIED TO URBAN PUPILS. EXPLANATORY PARAGRAPHS ACCOMPANY MOST OF THE CHARTS. AVAILABLE FROM NATIONAL COMMITTEE OR SUPPORT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1424 SIXTEENTH ST., N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, PRICE $1.00, 32P. (LB)
