Rankings of the States, 1995. A Data Resource for Examining State Public Education Programs.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
The annual "Rankings of the States" provides data on the 50 states and the District of Columbia to indicate their comparative positions nationally in a number of relevant areas. All state data are ranked beginning with the largest figure. State-by-state figures on government and school financing, state demographics, and public school personnel permit a statistical assessment of the scope of public education and an identification of emerging trends. The availability of government data governs the contents of the compilation; some information available in prior years was not available for this year. Series A presents tables about state populations; and Series B contains tables on enrollment, attendance, and membership. Series C provides faculty information. Series D contains information on general financial resources, while Series E considers governmental revenue and Series F contains tables of school revenue. Expenditures for governments and schools are summarized in Series G and H. A bibliography with seven sources and glossary are attached. (Contains 94 tables and 5 figures.) (SLD)
