Overview of Public Elementary and Secondary Schools and Districts: School Year 1993-94. Statistics in Brief.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This document presents data for 1993-94 from two state-level surveys that are part of the Common Core of Data (CCD) collection of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)--the Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey and Public Education Agency Survey. The data are also based on information reported by state education agencies. The document presents information in brief on types of public schools; schools and community size; primary, middle, and high school enrollment; school-district grade spans; school district size; and student characteristics. Some of the findings include: (1) 98.3 percent of public-school students were enrolled in regular schools; (2) almost three-fifths of public-school students attended schools within, or on the fringes of, large and midsize cities; and (3) almost one-half of the school districts had fewer than 1,000 students and almost one-half of the public-school students attended schools in districts of 10,000 students or more. Six tables, a list of key terms, and technical notes are included. (LMI)
