Golladay, Mary A.
This publication consists primarily of several hundred charts, graphs, and tables that present a wide variety of educational statistics for the United States through and including the 1974-75 school year. The largest section of the report is organized into eight chapters that each present statistics on a different dimension of American education. These chapters focus in turn on students and schools, outcomes of schooling, concerns of elementary and secondary education, participation in postsecondary education, relationships between education and work, educational personnel, elementary and secondary school finance, and comparative profiles of education in the United States and other countries. Also included in the report are a short section that provides technical information on the collection and compilation of the various statistics and a separate section that presents a detailed summary of the program and plans of the National Center for Education Statistics for fiscal years 1976 and 1977.
