Statistics of Local Public School Systems 1968-69. Finances.
This report presents educational data from a representative sample of United States public school systems. The present report contains national estimates for several classifications of school systems as well as basic data tables giving quantitative financial data. Data were obtained from a survey of local public school systems designed to include all school systems with enrollments of 10,000 or more and a stratified sample (by enrollment size) of the systems with fewer than 10,000 pupils. The primary purpose is to provide quantitative information comparable from school system to school system with summary and trend data analyses. The following subjects are covered: total money being spent in school systems, variance in per-pupil expenditures among different types of school systems, sources of school system funds, variations in receipt patterns among systems, and proportion of federal funds received in different types of systems. Appendixes include sample design and selection, definitions and limitations of the data, and a reproduction of the survey report form. A related document is ED 043 960. (Author/MLF)
