Early Childhood and Basic Elementary and Secondary Education: Needs, Programs, Demands, Costs. National Educational Finance Project; Special Study No. 1.
McLure, William P.; Pence, Audra May
This report describes two special studies that were funded separately as components of the National Educational Finance Project: (1) Early Childhood Education and (2) Basic Elementary and Secondary Education. For conceptual and operational reasons the two studies were merged into a single study which identifies the needs of individuals in American society and public school systems to meet those needs. A cost analysis of operating expenses of a sample of school districts (urban, suburban, independent and Bureau of Indian Affairs) for the regular scholastic year 1968-1969 and the summer of 1969 is presented. Also included is a projection of needs of 1980 in terms of capital outlay necessary to operate effective educational programs. Twenty-three tables and four appendixes supplement the text. School population estimates for 1970 and 1980 are also given. (WY)
