United States Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools 1994-95. Annual Statistical Report on Schools, Enrollment and Staffing.
Brigham, Frederick H., Jr.
Since 1969-70, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) has published a statistical report on Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the United States. This year's report contains the core school enrollment and staffing data of the NCEA historical file. Also included are data on Chapter 1 services, extended care programs, school boards of education, and coeducational and single-sex schools. The first part of the report presents a summary of the demographic trends affecting both public and private education. This is followed by specifics about Catholic schools based on information submitted by 174 archdiocesan and diocesan offices of education and state Catholic conferences. Population trends show increasing numbers of students at preschool and elementary age levels, continuing the trend that has seen Catholic preschool enrollment increase by over 400% since 1982-83. In 1994-95 there were 8,293 Catholic schools serving 2,618,567 students. Of these schools, 3,830 were urban, and 1,022 were in the inner city. Most faculty members (89.8%) were lay men and women. Three appendixes provide detailed summary reports of educational statistics. (Contains 25 exhibits.) (SLD)
