The Condition of Education. 1983 Edition. A Statistical Report.
Plisko, Valena White, Ed.
A statistical composite of the United States' educational system, this report addresses a range of 93 issues over all levels of education. A narrative introduction interprets a table and a chart for each topic. Data on elementary/secondary education include: enrollment trends in public and private schools; number and size of schools and school districts and student-teacher ratios; participation in basic courses, special courses, and programs for exceptional children; school revenues and per student expenditures; student performance assessment, state and local measures for improving performance, and public opinion of school effectiveness. Higher education issues include: enrollment trends; distribution of institutions by level, control and type of degree awarded, and closings of institutions; staffing trends, faculty salaries, and faculty collective bargaining; revenue and expenditures; and outcomes (degrees conferred and employment of recent college graduates). The chapter on vocational and adult education analyzes participation in vocational programs in high school and under the Vocational Education Act, and the characteristics and needs of adult education participants. Topics in teacher preparation include teacher supply and demand trends, teacher education institutions, and characteristics of new and prospective teachers. Appended are an explanation of data sources, a glossary, and a cumulative index to this and 1980 to 1982 editions. (MJL)
