The Condition of Education, 1992.
Alsalam, Nabeel; And Others
The current status of education for 1992 is presented in the form of education "indicators"--key data that measure the health of education, monitor important developments, and show trends in major aspects of education. The 60 indicators have been divided into 6 areas: (1) access, participation, and progress; (2) achievement, attainment, and curriculum; (3) economic and other outcomes of education; (4) size and growth of educational institutions; (5) climate, classrooms, and diversity in educational institutions; and (6) human and financial resources of educational institutions. The report includes the text, tables, and charts for each indicator plus the technical supporting data, supplemental information, and data sources. This edition integrates indicators on issues in elementary and secondary education with those on issues in postsecondary education to reflect the continuity of educational experiences. New indicators include the following: (1) enrollment below modal grade for language minority students; (2) international comparisons of mathematics and science performance; (3) international comparisons of educational attainment; (4) course-taking in academic, vocational, and personal use education among high school graduates; (5) programs and services offered by schools; (6) crime in the schools; (7) federal support for education; and (8) international comparisons of public expenditures of education extended to higher education.
