Key Statistics on Public Elementary and Secondary Schools and Agencies: School Year 1995-96. Survey Report.
Hoffman, Lee M.
This report provides information about the organization, students, staff, and financial resources of public elementary and secondary education agencies and schools in the United States during the 1995-96 school year. The information, taken from the Common Core of Data (CCD) survey system, is presented in the body of the report, with supplementary detailed tables in Appendix A. The CCD contains data provided voluntarily each year by the education agencies of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (overseas), and five outlying areas. During the 1995-96 school year, there were more than 16,000 local education agencies in these regions, and almost 15,000 were regular school districts directly responsible for free, public education. There were about 45 million public school students in 1995-96. Of these, two-thirds were White, non-Hispanic; about one in six was Black; and about one in seven was Hispanic. The almost 2.6 million teachers in this school year accounted for more than half of the almost 5 million local education employees. Information is also provided about educational finance, including average expenditures. Four appendixes contain supplementary and detailed tables, information about the CCD, and a glossary. (Contains 72 tables and 12 figures.) (SLD)
