Brigham, Frederick H., Jr.
Core school enrollment and staffing data are presented from the historical file of the National Catholic Education Association. Data are also presented for Chapter 1 services, extended care programs, and coeducational and single-sex schools. The first part of the report presents a summary of demographic trends with an impact on public and private education. Information is based on reports submitted by 174 diocesan and archdiocesan offices of education or state Catholic conferences. Trends show increasing numbers of students at the preschool and elementary school levels, with an increase in Catholic preschool enrollment of nearly 300 percent in the last decade. In 1992-93, there were 8,423 Catholic schools, 7,174 of which were elementary schools. The total number of Catholic students had increased by 16,767 since the preceding year, to 2,567,630. Numbers and percentages of minority students reflect population trends in 1992-93. The percentage of minority students had more than doubled since 1970-71 and continued to increase. In 1992-93, 3,937 Catholic schools were in urban areas, and non-Catholics represented 12.3 percent of the total Catholic school enrollment. Almost 88 percent of the faculty were lay men and women. Students in 5,306 Catholic schools were eligible for Chapter 1 services. Twenty-one exhibits present data on the Catholic schools. Appendix A is a summary report of basic school statistics in table form. Appendix B lists states with enrollment increases. Appendix C is a summary report of supplemental data by region. (SLD)
