Gerald, Elizabeth; And Others
The Private School Universe Survey is designed to collect data from all private schools in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The 1989-90 survey provides data for this report for schools with kindergarten through grade 12 by school size, school level, religious orientation, geographic region, and program emphasis. Data were collected from 26,712 schools, with 4,838,497 students and 331,533 full-time-equivalent teachers. Fifty-five percent of the students attended Catholic schools, with 32 percent attending other religiously affiliated schools, and 13 percent in non-sectarian schools. Most private school students (2.8 million) were enrolled at the elementary school level. Forty-four percent of the teachers worked in the Catholic schools, with 36 percent in other religiously affiliated schools, and 21 percent in non-sectarian schools. Eighty percent of the private school teachers worked full time. Fourteen tables present survey data. A "Technical Notes" section provides methodological information. Appendix A contains 14 standard error tables, and Appendix B presents the Private Schools Survey instrument for 1989-90. (SLD)
