Projections of Education Statistics to 1988-89.
Frankel, Martin M.; Gerald, Debra E.
In five chapters, 47 tables, and 26 figures, the authors describe national educational trends from 1968 to 1978 and project trends for 1978 to 1989. The report covers enrollments at all educational levels, numbers of high school graduates and earners of higher education degrees, numbers of instructional staff and educational expenditures at all levels, and costs charged to higher education students. The authors predict decreases through the 1980s in elementary, secondary, and postsecondary enrollments, high school graduates, baccalaureate degrees granted, and employed higher education teachers; but they foresee increases in elementary and secondary teachers and in expenditures at all levels. The data on enrollments, graduates, degrees, and teachers are controlled for several other variables, including age, sex, full- or part-time teaching or attendance, public or private control, field of study, two- or four-year program, graduate or undergraduate status, type of postsecondary degree, and teachers' academic rank. The financial data cover teacher salaries, capital outlays, interest payments, and sources of funds and control for current and constant (1978-1979) dollars. The report's six appendices (with 3 figures and 52 tables) discuss the authors' methods and definitions and supply supporting demographic and financial data. (RW)
