The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) projects that total elementary and secondary school enrollment will be 45.6 million in fall 1989. There were an estimated 45.4 million students enrolled in 1988. Enrollment in kindergarten through grade 8 is expected to increase from 32.4 million in 1988 to 32.9 million in 1989, an increase of 1.5 percent. In contrast, enrollment in grades 9-12 will continue to decline. This number is expected to decrease from 13.0 million in 1988 to 12.7 million in 1989, a drop of 2.6 percent. During the 1989 to 1993 period, elementary enrollment is expected to rise steadily, while secondary enrollment is expected to reverse its decline midway through the period. Increases are projected for both public and private schools. Technical notes discuss the methodology, forecast accuracy, and sources of data of this targeted forecast; an address where further information may be obtained is noted. (MLF)
