New York, the State of Learning: A Report to the Governor and the Legislature on the Educational Status of the State's Schools: Statewide Profile of the Educational System.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This is the fourth annual report on New York State's schools written pursuant to legislation enacted in 1987. As in previous years, there is a bimodal curve of achievement, with students in affluent suburban areas doing better than those in concentrated pockets of poverty, particularly in cities. A statistical portrait of the elementary and secondary system is presented, using the most current available data. This volume displays information about public and non-public schools for the state as a whole and for five public school categories covering cities, the suburbs, and rural areas, and for two non-public school areas in New York City and elsewhere. Information is provided on: (1) enrollment trends; (2) resources; (3) participation rates in various programs; (4) student performance, including standardized test performance; (5) attendance and high school completion; and (6) postsecondary education and employment. The patterns of inequality of educational outcomes and the breadth of these inequalities between minority and non-minority children have not changed since this report was first published in 1988. Included are 91 figures and 100 tables of data about New York schools. (SLD)
