Stieber, Gertrude N.
The total member of students per professional staff member in the public elementary and secondary school systems of the nation decreased from an estimated 19.8 in 1970-71 to 17.7 in 1972-73, or a decrease of 10.6 percent. The enrollment for the approximately 16,408 operating public school systems in 1972-73 was estimated to be 45,299,766; the total full-time professional staff was 2,556,790 (estimated). In the same year, there were an estimated 17.7 students per professional staff member; 20.1 students per teacher, 428.3 students for every principal and assistant principal, 332.3 students for all other professional employees assigned to individual school buildings, and 702.3 students for all central office administrators and/or supervisors. These data are shown, together with a comparison of information for alternate years (1964-65 through 1972-73). A system-by-system listing of reporting systems with enrollments of 25,000 or more that furnished sufficient information for inclusion is provided; for smaller systems, a selected group of districts is shown for comparison on an enrollment basis. The listing is intended to exemplify systems from various enrollment size groups and from various States. (Author/DN)
