Dearman, Nancy B., Ed.; Plisko, Valena White, Ed.
Describing conditions in education as well as those in the larger society that affect education, this eighth annual statistical report focuses on the impact of enrollment changes at the elememtary/secondary and postsecondary levels. Each of the five chapters presents a narrative analysis complementing the data, which is presented in chartbook form. Chapter 1 gives an overview of enrollment trends in elementary/secondary and postsecondary education. Chapters 2 and 4 describe the adjustments made by schools and institutions to shifting population needs at the different educational levels. Chapter 3 takes a special look at the public elementary/secondary teaching force, and chapter 5 concludes the report by presenting the most recent data on the outcomes of schooling from kindergarten through college. Data sources and definitions of selected terms are appended. A related document, EA 014 879, which forms part 2 of the report, contains a description of the activities of the National Center for Education Statistics. (Author/WD)
