The Condition of Education, 1993.
Alsalam, Nabeel; And Others
The current status of education for 1993 is presented in the form of education "indicators"--key data that measure the health of education, monitor important developments, and show trends in major aspects of education. The 60 indicators have been divided into 6 areas: (1) access, participation, and progress; (2) achievement, attainment, and curriculum; (3) economic and other outcomes of education; (4) size, growth and output of educational institutions; (5) climate, classrooms, and diversity in educational institutions; and (6) human and financial resources of educational institutions. The report includes the text, tables, and charts for each indicator plus the technical supporting data, supplemental information, and data sources. Indicators on issues in elementary and secondary education are integrated with those on issues in postsecondary education to reflect the continuity of educational experiences. New indicators include the following: (1) age of first graders; (2) participation in adult education; (3) educational attainment of Hispanics, by recency of migration; (4) course taking in college for recent graduates and for recently graduated full-time teachers; (5) education and labor-market outcomes of high school diploma and GED graduates; (6) health characteristics of adults, by years of schooling; (7) participation in school decision making; (8) time in the classroom; and (9) international comparisons of reading literacy.
