Population, Enrollment, and Costs of Public Elementary and Secondary Education 1975-76 and 1980-81.
Froomkin, Joseph; And Others
Enrollment projections for nursery, elementary, and secondary schools through 1981 are provided. Statistics are arranged according to school enrollment projections for 1975 and 1980; tentative enrollment projections in public and private schools; teacher supply and demand -- 1970, 1975, and 1980; current expenditure projections -- 1975-76 and 1980-81; and construction outlay and debt service projections for 1971-72 to 1980-81. An executive summary notes that costs to the public for financing public education depend on (1) the total number of children in eligible age groups, (2) the proportion of each age group enrolled, (3) the proportion attending public schools, and (4) the developments in instructional salaries and other expenditures. Projections indicate that the 14-19-year old population can be expected to increase 8.9 percent between 1970-71 and 1975-76; the public schools will increase their share of enrollments over private schools from 88.2 percent (grades 1-12) in 1970-71 to 92.6 percent in 1975-76, and to 95.0 percent in 1980-81; and total current expenditures for each public school pupil are expected to increase 4.8 percent per year between 1967-68 and 1975-76, and 2.8 percent between 1975-76 and 1980-80.
