Presented in this report are basic education data for fall 1976 on all free public elementary and secondary day schools in the United States and some outlying areas under U.S. jurisdiction. National trend data since fall 1972 on selected items of information are included. Basic data for each state or other area are shown on numbers of local school districts, staff, and pupils in fall 1976 and, for the 1976-77 school year, estimated revenue and nonrevenue receipts, school expenditures, and the average salaries paid to classroom teachers and others of the professional/educational staff. Data on the numbers of public elementary and secondary day schools and high school graduates for school year 1975-76 are also included. Most of these same data items are also shown for 18 of the 20 most populous cities that ranked highest in total population in the 1970 census. Survey procedures and coverage are described briefly, and a replica of the survey questionnaire is included in the appendix. (Author/MLF)
