Simon, Kenneth A.; Grant, W. Vance
This digest provides statistical information covering the entire field of American education from kindergarten through the graduate school. It utilizes materials from numerous sources, including statistical surveys and estimates of USOE and other appropriate agencies, both governmental and nongovernmental. Information is presented on a wide variety of subjects, including the number of schools and colleges, enrollments, teachers, graduates, educational attainment, finances, Federal funds for education, libraries, international education, and research and development. The information is organized into five sections: (1) All levels of education, (2) elementary and secondary education, (3) higher education, (4) Federal programs of education, and (5) miscellaneous statistics related to American education. Improvements and additions over previous volumes in this series include a statement of the development of Federal programs, expanded coverage of library statistics, summary data on the characteristics of graduate students, information on the range of teacher salaries as distinguished from average salaries, and data on doctors degrees conferred by institutions of higher education.
