Mini-Compendio de cifras en educacion, 1995 (Mini-Digest of Education Statistics, 1995).
This publication presents statistical information about elementary, secondary, and higher education in the United States in compact form. This information is presented in much greater detail in the "Digest of Education Statistics,""The Condition of Education," and "Youth Indicators." In 1995 there were about 45 million students in public elementary and secondary schools, and an additional 5.7 million in private schools. These figures indicate a substantial increase over enrollments in 1985, as charts detail. This trend is expected to continue, with approximately 37.3 million students expected in the elementary grades in 1996, and a projected enrollment of 14.4 million in secondary schools. The proportion of minority students has increased in U.S. schools since 1984, reaching about 32.4% in 1994. In 1995, approximately 9 million students in higher education attended four-year schools and about 6 million attended two-year schools. Data are also provided on the number of teachers at each level of education, teacher salaries, and teacher characteristics. A section presents information on the outcomes of education, with data on graduates, dropouts, and literacy rates. A final section contains statistical data about educational finance, including income and expenditures, and sources of student aid and scholarships. (Contains 12 figures and 30 tables.) (SLD)
