1993-94 Estimates of School Statistics As Provided by the State Departments of Education.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
The data presented in this report provide facts about the extent to which national, state, and local governments commit resources to educate youth. These estimates provide current information on public school enrollment and participation, employment and compensation of personnel, and finances, as reported by state education departments. The state-level data permits broad assessments of trends in staff salaries, sources of school funding, and levels of educational experiences. Among the most significant findings to emerge from these data is that public school enrollment is expected to increase by nearly 625,000 students from 1992-93 to 1993-94, with the greater increase in elementary school students. State education departments consequently expect the number of teachers to increase by over 15,000 in the same period, and the average teacher salary is expected to increase by 2.7% over 1992-93. This will contribute to an expected increase in total expenditures of 4.3% overall. In all these categories, differences among states are considerable. Three general tables reflecting trends are supplemented by 11 state notes and state-by-state data tables and 11 figures. A glossary is included. (SLD)
