Statistics of Public Elementary and Secondary Day Schools, Fall 1972: Pupils, Instructional and Noninstructional Staff, Expenditures and Salaries.
Foster, Betty J.
For the 19th consecutive year the U.S. Office of Education, assisted by education officials from the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the outlying areas of the United States, has conducted a fall survey of public elementary and secondary day schools. Included are national trend data since fall 1968 on selected items of information. Data are collected on the numbers of pupils, high school graduates, and pupils on curtailed sessions due mainly to shortage of classroom space or instructional staff. This survey was expanded to include total instructional and noninstructional staff and classroom teachers, and estimated average daily attendance and average daily membership. To the extent available, data are shown for each State and the District of Columbia, and also for five outlying areas: American Samoa, Canal Zone, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Also provided is information on the school systems located in the 20 largest cities that ranked highest in total population according to the 1970 census. Statistics for the outlying areas are shown separately and are not included in the national totals. National and State totals for fall 1971 are provided for comparison purposes. Data were furnished by State education agencies on two report forms, samples of which are appended. (Pages 18 and 19 may reproduce poorly.) (Author)
