Characteristics of Public Elementary and Secondary Schools in the United States, 1986-87. E.D. TABS.
Center for Education Statistics (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
This report includes state-level tabulations of basic data on the numbers, sizes, types, and grade spans of public schools in the United States for the school year 1986-87. The data are based on information from the Common Core of Data series of the Center for Education Statistics. Nine tables summarize statistical information supplied to the center by state education agency officials. About 95 percent of all schools are classified as "regular" as opposed to "special education,""vocational education," or other type. These 95 percent enroll about 98 percent of all public school students. The median school size within a state ranges from 96 students in Nebraska to 682 in Florida. In virtually every state, the largest groups of schools are those that offer instruction on one or more grades from prekindergarten through the sixth grade. (MLF)
