Information about education in Nevada is presented in a series of tables and graphs. In 1993 public school enrollment had increased to 235,800, with much of the increase occurring in the last 5 years. Growth in the elementary grades outpaced growth in the secondary grades, largely because of an influx of young families into the state. In addition, the Hispanic enrollment in the state's public schools grew substantially. In 1982, 5.8% of the total school enrollment was Hispanic; in 1993, this figure had grown to 14.3%. The amount of public education funded by Federal and local sources has continued to increase, but the 1992 state level of funding of the public schools actually decreased from that of 1990 by about 2%. Local sources fund almost 60% of the state's public education. In 1993, Nevada ranked 35th in expenditures per student, at $4,590. Expenditures for the state's colleges and universities increased by almost 79% in the last decade, with most of this increase at the community college level. Increases in undergraduate registration fees have helped offset the rising costs. In fiscal year 1989-90, Nevada ranked 38th among the states in institutional expenditures per full-time-equivalent student for public institutions of higher education.
