The Condition of Education, 1994.
Smith, Thomas M.; And Others
The current status of education for 1994 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. Information on issues in elementary and secondary education are integrated with those on issues in postsecondary education to reflect the continuity of educational experiences. An overview synthesizes evidence from both the 60 indicators and other sources on selected issues: (1) a review of the educational status of high-school students 10 years after the publication of "A Nation at Risk"; (2) a discussion of teachers as an educational resource; (3) progress in the achievement and attainment of black students relative to whites; and (4) a description of the subbaccalaureate sector of postsecondary education. Appendices contain 156 supplemental tables and notes, a list of data sources, a glossary, an index, and a list of National Center for Education publications. (LMI)
