Geddes, Claire; Johnston, Caroline
This is the fourth edition of the Spanish version of the "Mini-Digest of Education Statistics," a publication designed to present, in compact form, statistical information about education in the United States from kindergarten through graduate school. Data are derived from many sources, but unless it is stated to the contrary, information is from the annual "Digest of Education Statistics" of the National Institute for Education Statistics. Education was the principal activity of 74 million people in the United States in the fall of 1995. This total includes about 4 million teachers and college professors and about 4.4 million other school personnel, as well as students at elementary, secondary, and higher levels. In 1996, there were about 32.8 million students enrolled in kindergarten through grade 8 in the public schools, and about 13 million were enrolled at the secondary level. The first set of tables presents statistics on elementary, secondary, and postsecondary enrollment, with information on the enrollment of minority groups and participation in programs for the disadvantaged. Another section presents statistics about teacher characteristics and salaries. A section on results of schooling presents tables about required courses, dropouts, graduates, literacy, and degrees. A final section presents statistics on educational finance, reporting on expenditures, income, and federal aid for elementary, secondary, and higher levels. (Contains 30 tables.) (SLD)
