The overview tables contain data for the 1970-71, 1980-81, 1985-86, and 1991-92 school years on enrollment, instructional staff, expenditures, and federal funds for education. Numbers of schools, enrollment, numbers of teachers, high school graduates, finances, and pupil-teacher ratios are summarized for elementary and secondary education. The higher education section lists numbers of colleges, enrollment, degrees conferred, and finances.
