Private Schools in the United States: A Statistical Profile, 1993-94. Statistical Analysis Report.
McLaughlin, Donald H.; Broughman, Stephen
Private elementary and secondary schools continue to play an important role in the American education system, educating about one-tenth of the nation's young people. This report, based on the National Center for Education Statistics' Schools and Staffing Survey of 1993-94, is designed to update the picture of private schools in the United States, based on responses from a nationally representative sample of 2,585 private schools and 8,372 teachers in those schools. The report contains graphic statistical profiles of Catholic schools, other religiously oriented schools, and nonsectarian schools, using both a 9-category typology and an 18-category affiliation system. The profiles contain information organized under the headings of schools and students; teachers and principals; and climate, goals, and outcomes. Forty-two tables are included. Appendices contain tables of standard errors, technical notes, and data and standard errors for the graphic profiles. (LMI)
