The Condition of Education, Part 2. 1982 Edition. NCES Programs and Plans.
Forming part 2 of the eighth annual report on the condition of education in the United States, this publication describes the programs and activities of the National Center for Education Statistics. Both current and projected programs are discussed in order to provide educators and policy makers some insight into the services offered by the Center. The report is divided into eight sections that include an introduction and information on projects involving elementary/secondary education, higher education, adult and vocational education, national longitudinal studies, learning resources, information dissemination services, and state technical assistance. The Center's 1983 program will concentrate on maintaining five databases on public and private schools at different levels, analyzing data from the Center's longitudinal studies, administering surveys on current policy issues, and operating the Statistical Information Office, which provides comprehensive information services to Congress, the states, and the general public.
