Nebraska State Report Card, 1999-2000 = Tarjeta informativa del Estado de Nebraska, 1999-2000.
Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln.
This report, printed in English and Spanish versions, is the first Nebraska State Report Card. It provides a snapshot of Nebraska schools using statewide averages. Nebraska students scored better than students nationwide in reading, with 60% of Nebraska students in grades 3-4, 7-8, and 10-12 scoring above the median on a standardized reading test. Nebraska students also scored better than students nationwide in mathematics. The report card shows that Nebraska student enrollment grew from 1984 through 1997, but that it since has declined slightly. Many changes have occurred to increase the diversity of Nebraska students and the numbers requiring special services. In Nebraska, 73% of high school students took the ACT Assessment, and they outscored their peers nationally on this college entrance examination. National Assessment of Educational Progress results showed that Nebraska students consistently outscored their peers. The state's high school graduation rate has consistently remained high. Information is also provided about Nebraska's public school teachers, the subjects in which they majored, their average salaries, and their attendance in the classroom. Some information is given about the state's 593 school districts and the financial support the districts receive. (Contains 10 figures and 3 tables.) (SLD)
