The Condition of Education, 1990. Volume 1: Elementary and Secondary Education.
Ogle, Laurence T., Ed.; Alsalam, Nabeel, Ed.
This is the first of two volumes of the National Center for Education Statistics' annual statistical report on the condition of education in the United States for 1990. This volume addresses elementary and secondary education, while the second volume covers postsecondary education (PE). Condition of education indicators (CEIs)--key data that measure the health of education, monitor important developments, and show trends between 1970 and 1989 in education--are provided. This volume includes the text, tables, and charts/graphs for each CEI plus technical supporting data, supplemental information, data sources, and glossaries. Most CEIs examine relationships; show changes over time; compare subpopulations, regions, or states; or study traits of students from different backgrounds. For student progression and outcomes, context, and resources, 29 CEIs are provided. New CEIs in 1990 include high school (HS) drop-out rates, HS students' course-taking patterns, proportion of HS students who work while attending school, and eighth graders' attitudes about school climate. The document also provides disparate data on preprimary education, drop-outs and completions, achievement, students in the schools, and minorities. (RLC)
