Early Estimates of Public Elementary and Secondary Education Statistics: School Year 1998-99. Early Estimates.
McDowell, Lena M.
The early estimates system from which the data for this report is gathered allows the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to publish selected key statistics during the school year in which they are reported. This publication contains the key statistics for the 1998-99 school year. They include the numbers of students in membership, teachers, and high school graduates for public elementary and secondary schools, and total revenues and expenditures for the operation of public elementary and secondary schools. The public school estimates consist of preliminary actual counts for the individual states, estimates derived by the states for NCES, and estimated values developed by NCES. These estimates indicate that there were approximately 46.3 million students in the U.S.'s public elementary and secondary schools in fall 1998, who were taught by an estimated 2.8 million teachers. An estimated 2.4 million students graduated from public high schools in 1997-98, with 2.5 million expected to graduate in the 1998-99 school year. A technical notes section discusses the methods by which estimates were made and their accuracy. (Contains seven tables.) (SLD)
