Statistics of Public Elementary and Secondary School Systems: Schools, Pupils and Staff, Fall 1980.
Price, Elaine J.
This report provides basic statistics for fall 1980 on public elementary and secondary school systems in each state, the District of Columbia, and outlying areas under U.S. jurisdiction. The information presented covers the number of schools, teachers, and high school graduates; the sizes of the school age population and of school membership; the sizes of pupil/teacher and pupil/school ratios; and the assignment of school staffs by category. Tables reveal the patterns of change over recent years in several of the areas for which statistics are provided. Among the general findings of the survey are that the student population, the number of schools, and the pupil/teacher ratios decreased between the fall of 1979 and the fall of 1980, whereas the number of full-time equivalency classroom teachers rose. Appendices include a discussion of the nature and conduct of the survey and reproductions of survey report forms. (Author/PGD)
