Estimates of School Statistics, 1983-84, As Provided by the State Departments of Education.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
These school statistics are compiled from estimated data provided by the 50 state education agencies and the District of Columbia for use by the National Education Association's state and local affiliates, which employ them in their negotiations, research, and lobbying activities. Current-year projections of enrollment, staff, and financial variables enable educators to assess the demand for public school services. Eleven state-by-state tables permit interstate and regional comparisons of educational systems; trends in national-level data are identified in the text. Estimates are featured for the 1983-84 school year and for 1982-83 by state, with summary statistics for the United States from 1973 to 1984. Data on current-year projects, state-by-state tables, and trends are divided into five main categories: (1) general administration (basic administrative units); (2) pupils (fall enrollment in schools, average daily membership (ADM), average daily attendance (ADA), and high school graduates); (3) instructional staff (total instructional staff, classroom teachers, instructional staff salaries, and classroom teachers' salaries); (4) revenue and nonrevenue receipts; and (5) expenditures (total expenditures, current expenditures, current expenditure per pupil in ADA, current expenditure per pupil in ADM, current expenditures for other programs, capital outlay, and interest on school debt). A glossary is also provided. (PB)
