The Pocket Condition of Education, 1996.
Smith, Thomas M.
Since 1870, the federal government has gathered data about students, teachers, schools, and education funding. The U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) annually publishes a statistical report on the status and progress of education in the United States. The "Condition of Education" includes data and analysis on a wide variety of issues, including: (1) access, participation, and progress; (2) achievement, attainment, and curriculum; (3) economic and other outcomes of education; (4) size, growth, and output of educational institutions; (5) climate, classrooms, and diversity in educational institutions; and (6) human and financial resources of educational institutions. The indicators in the publication use data from government and private sources. This pamphlet contains 30 charts that comprise a small sample of the 60 indicators contained in the larger report, "The Condition of Education." (LMI)
