Summary of Offerings and Enrollments in Public Secondary Schools, 1972-73.
This report summarizes data obtained for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in a survey of the courses taught in public secondary schools of the 50 states and the District of Columbia during the 1972-73 school year. Questionnaires were mailed to a sample of 8,489 schools throughout the nation offering course work in any or all of grades 7-12; the schools selected were generally representative by size, type, and location of schools within each state. In addition to examining course organization and curricular practices, the main thrust of the survey was to elicit the titles and number of courses being offered by secondary schools and to determine the number of pupils who availed themselves of these offerings. The main purpose of the report is to provide up-to-date information to the respondent schools and state education agencies, although the historical comparability of the data was also considered. Appendix A provides technical information on how the data were collected and analyzed, and Appendix B contains a reproduction of the 18-page questionnaire that was completed by the respondent schools.
