Dearman, Nancy B.; Plisko, Valena White
This annual statistical report describes the national condition of education and the conditions in the larger society that may affect education. Statistical data are presented on issues concerning educational institutions, students, and personnel. The first section of this report describes trends and developments affecting education at all levels. Chapter 1 explores the student population of the 1980s, the current status of science education, and changes in educational expenditures. Chapter 2 covers such facets of elementary and secondary education as enrollment trends, staffing trends, teacher status, and student performance and testing. Chapter 3 examines the enrollment, staffing, and outcomes of higher education. In the second section of the report, special topics have been selected for closer analysis. Chapter 4 looks at the financing of higher education; chapter 5 examines preprimary education, including enrollment, student characteristics, facilities, costs, and effects; chapter 6 discusses adult and occupational education; and chapter 7 analyzes changes in resource disparity in elementary and secondary education both between and within states.
