The general topic of each card has been printed in the upper right hand corner so they may be used as an idea file. The following topics are included: (1) student performance (academic achievement, high school graduates, and long-lasting results of education); (2) student enrollment (California enrollment, enrollment growth, trends, minority enrollment, and private school enrollment); (3) school finance (public opinion, California state support, and comparison to the gross national product); (4) education staffing (district consolidation, teachers' educational levels, teacher shortages, and why teachers leave education); (5) educational quality (educational standards and research on effective schools); (6) demographics (trends in age distribution of the general population and trends in minority populations); and (7) business involvement with education (Adopt-a-School and Regional Occupational Programs). Many of the statistics are specific to San Diego County or California. Extra cards are provided for each topic so that users may add their own information to the file. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
