Fromboluti, Carol Sue
This publication provides a pocket-sized compilation of statistical information on American education from kindergarten through graduate school. It is an easy reference for material found in greater detail in the 1993 editions of the "Digest of Educational Statistics,""The Condition of Education," and "Youth Indicators," and unless otherwise noted, the information in this compilation comes from these sources. Education was the primary occupation of nearly 72 million people in the United States in the fall of 1993, a figure that includes approximately 63.9 million students enrolled in elementary, secondary, and higher education. Nearly 3.7 million people were employed as teachers and college faculty, with approximately 4.2 million people in other professional, administrative, and support occupations. More than one of every four people participated in formal education. Thirty tables and 12 figures present information on American education in the following categories: (1) structure, (2) enrollment, (3) teachers, (4) educational outcomes, and (5) finance. (SLD)
