Snyder, Thomas D.; Hoffman, Charlene M.
This report contains information on elementary and secondary schools and institutions of higher education aggregated at a state level. A wide array of statistical data is presented, ranging from enrollments and enrollment ratios to teacher salaries and institutional finances. The report is designed to meet the needs of state and local education officials and analysts who need convenient access to state level statistics, without consulting numerous volumes and conflicting sources. Examples of new materials for this volume include: expenditures per student in elementary and secondary schools, by function; percent of students participating in federal special education programs, public school districts' sizes; distribution of college graduates by major; average public college tuition compared to per capita income; and educational and general expenditure per full time equivalent student by type and control of institution. The report reflects an extension of the prior two editions and also presents detailed analytical tables that highlight more recent data as well as annual time-series data from 1969-70 to 1992-93 or 1993-94. An attachment, "Guide to Sources," presents technical information about the sources of published information, and a glossary section of definitions is included. (Contains 26 figures and 87 tables.)
