Educational Benchmarks, 1996: State-by-State Background Data.
Creech, Joseph D.
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) monitors the South's education reforms through "Benchmarks" reports, tracking progress toward 12 goals for elementary, secondary, and higher education that were endorsed by the SREB in 1988. The board collects state-by-state data every 2 years and compares how states are doing on over 60 different indicators. This report contains statistical data on background indicators such as enrollment, numbers of teachers, and the student-teacher ratio in the schools of southern states. It also provides data for the indicators used to assess school readiness, student achievement, the dropout rate and adult education, college readiness and completion, teacher education, faculty salaries, and funding. A total of 46 tables are included. (LMI)
