Public Elementary and Secondary School Statistics: School Year 1993-1994. Early Estimates.
Johnson, Frank H.; Fowler, William J., Jr.
The estimates in this report are key statistics reported early in the 1993-94 school year under the early estimates system, which allows the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to report important information promptly. These key statistics include the numbers of students in membership, teachers, and high school graduates for public elementary and secondary schools, and total revenues and expenditures for the operation of public schools. The estimates consist of (1) preliminary actual counts; (2) estimates derived by the NCES; and (3) imputed values developed by the NCES using state-specific and national data. The approximately 43.3 million students in elementary and secondary schools in fall 1993 represent both an increase compared with the preceding year and an increase of 2.8 million in comparison with fall 1989. An estimated 2.5 million teachers teach these children, at an overall pupil-teacher ratio of 17.3. Revenues for public education in fiscal year 1993 are estimated at $243.9 billion, with per-pupil expenditures estimated at $5,314 per student. Seven tables present these statistics. (SLD)
