Johnson, Frank H.
This report presents non-fiscal information on public elementary and secondary schools for the 1991-92 school year and finance data for the 1990-91 school year (fiscal year 1991). Statistics are based on data from two of the four surveys of the Common Core of Data program of the National Center for Education Statistics. In comparing findings of the State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary and Secondary Education and the National Public Education Financial Survey with those of previous years, several findings stand out. There were 42.0 million students in public schools in 1991-92, an increase of 1.9 percent over the previous year's total. The 2.2 million high school graduates for 1990-91 represent a decrease from 1989-90, although the ratio of graduates to 12th-grade enrollment increased slightly. Of the 4.5 million school staff reported for 1991-92, 53.5 percent were teachers and 410,000 were teacher aides. The national ratio of total students to total teachers in 1991-92 was 17.3 students per teacher, a slight increase over the previous year. Total reported revenues for public elementary and secondary education were 222.8 billion dollars for 1990-91, compared with 207.7 billion dollars for 1989-90. Expenditures averaged 4,890 dollars per pupil in membership. Data are presented in 14 tables, with 14 tables of state aggregate data, revised final tabulations, in Appendix A and the survey forms in Appendix B. (SLD)
