Statistics of Nonpublic Elementary and Secondary Schools, 1970-71.
Gertler, Diane B.; Barker, Linda A.
This publication presents the results obtained from the most recent Survey of Nonpublic Elementary and Secondary Education (1970-71). The data included present a measurement of the scope and describe some of the characteristics of the schools comprising the nonpublic sector, and reflect the status of these schools in the 50 States and the District of Columbia as of fall 1970. Nonpublic schools are defined as schools that are privately controlled by a nonpublic entity and are financed from sources other than public taxation or public grants. Included are parochial schools; privately operated schools providing education equivalent to that of the public elementary and secondary schools for students who are deaf, blind, mentally retarded, or who have other types of physical or mental exceptionality; private college preparatory schools or military academies; "finishing" schools; and practice or laboratory schools of private colleges and universities. The methods used in conducting the survey and a more complete discussion of data limitations and specific measures of the extent of sampling and sampling reliability are contained in a technical appendix.
