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 document is an analysis of statewide educational data procured by the New York State Education Department and presented to the Governor and the Legislature. Data are primarily derived from information submitted by superintendents of schools. This fifth in the series of annual reports again shows that students in affluent areas do reasonably well and those in poverty do poorly. It is apparent that the students with the greatest needs often have the fewest resources. The following data are provided: (1) enrollment trends; (2) resources; (3) participation rates; (4) student performance; (5) attendance and high school completion; and (6) postsecondary education and employment. Overall, the patterns of educational inequality and the breadth of these inequalities have not changed since the reports began in 1988. Information about New York schools is presented in 94 tables and 95 figures. Appendix A lists data resources, Appendix B is an annotated bibliography of state educational publications, and Appendix C provides information on non-public schools in an additional six tables.
