Texas Education Agency, Austin. Dept. of Research and Development.
This annual statistical report provides a general overview of information related to Texas public schools for the 1989-90 school year. The document begins with "Statistical Highlights," which examines state-level data and discusses the major areas of administrative units, students, staff, and finance for the current year and for comparison with some previous years. The "Detailed Statistics" section provides extensive school district level information on the same major areas discussed in the opening "Highlights" section. Information is displayed in three parts: (1) 91 data items categorized by size, rural versus urban classification, property wealth per pupil, tax effort, and Education Service Center region; (2) tables showing the value of each data item at various percentiles of school districts (distribution statistics); and (3) values for all data items listed for each school district, followed by a state summary. There are 210 pages of tables in the district information. Three appendices contain data sources, notes for clarification, and a listing of Texas school districts in alphabetical order. Twenty-eight exhibits are provided. (SLD)
