National Education Association, Washington, DC. Research Div.
This document contains rank-ordered statistics for the 50 states and the District of Columbia for an array of topics relevant to public education. All state data are ranked beginning with the largest figure. The data in the rankings are the most recent actual or estimated data available from state departments of education. Tables in the first series provide information about state populations and consequently provide information about the demand for public education services and other public programs. In the second series of tables, enrollment, attendance, and membership are described, with information on changes in enrollment over the previous year. Personnel in local schools and in public institutions of higher learning are the focus of the third series of tables. Average salaries are included in this grouping. General financial resources are described in the fourth series of tables, while the fifth series of tables describes governmental revenue and the sixth series of tables profiles school revenue. Government expenditures are the focus of the seventh series of tables, and school expenditures are described in the eighth series. (Contains 106 tables and 7 references.) (SLD)
