National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
How many students were enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools in 1995-96? How many staff members were paid to teach, supervise, and provide support services for education? How many students graduated from high school? The information to answer these and other questions is provided in this National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) report, the State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary and Secondary Education. The survey is an annual state-level collection of student, staff, and high school graduate counts for grades prekindergarten through 12. The data are collected from state education agencies, processed and edited by the U.S. Bureau of the Census, and then verified by NCES. The data show that about 2.6 million teachers provided instruction in public elementary and secondary schools during the 1995-96 school year; that there were 44.8 million students enrolled; and that 2,274,000 students received regular high school diplomas. The report also contains definitions, one figure, and three tables. (LMI)
