Public and Private Elementary and Secondary Education Statistics: School Year 1992-93. Early Estimates.
Bobbitt, Sharon A.; And Others
The estimates in this publication are key statistics reported early in the 1992-93 school year. They include the number of students in membership, teachers, and high school graduates for public and private elementary and secondary schools, and total revenues and expenditures for the operation of public elementary and secondary schools. The public school estimates consist of three kinds of data: preliminary actual counts for individual states; estimates derived by the states for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES); and imputed values developed by NCES using a combination of state-specific and national data. Private school early estimates are based on a national probability sample of private schools surveyed in fall 1992. The highlights of the report include the following estimates for the 1992-93 school year: (1) total student membership in all the nation's schools (public and private) is estimated to be 47.6 million students; (2) 2.5 million students are expected to graduate from high school; (3) there are 2.5 million public school teachers; (4) and the cost of public education is $5,372 per student. Data are presented in 13 tables. Technical notes explain the data collection and estimation processes. (MLF)
