A Survey of Public Education in the Nation's Urban School Districts, 1983.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
This report presents the results of a survey of the 69 urban school districts constituting the National School Boards Association (NSBA) Council of Urban Boards of Education. It provides data designed to assist school board members and school superintendents in meeting their leadership responsibilities, and indicates significant trends in urban education. Data presented are organized into two major categories: (1) a profile of urban school districts (including enrollment, programs, and staff in the 69 school districts), school board makeup, school district finances, and characteristics of urban superintendents; and (2) the fiscal impact of Federal budget cuts for 1982-83 on the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act (ECIA) Chapter I, Impact Aid, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (P.L. 94-142), vocational education, and school lunch programs. The two instruments used in the survey are included as appendices. (CJM)
