Fact Book on Higher Education, 2003. Condensed Edition.
Marks, Joseph L.
This booklet is the condensed version of the annual "Fact Book" of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). The aim of the SREB is to track progress in closing achievement gaps, preparing students for the next levels, and aligning schools and colleges into a productive, accountable system. Information in the "Fact Book" sheds light on progress toward or movement away form these goals in the states that are SREB members. The 2003 "Fact Book" shows that SREB states have made remarkable gains in the last 55 years in educational offerings, educational attainment, and societal progress. However, these facts show that SREB states have not reached their final destinations. A few SREB states lead on some national indicators, and many have made notable progress, but SREB states tank near the bottom on too many national measures. Data in the "Fact Book" are presented in these categories: (1) "Population and Economy"; (2) "Enrollment"; (3) "Degrees"; (4) "Tuition and Student Financial Aid"; (5) "Faculty and Administrators"; (6) "Revenues and Expenditures"; and (7) "SREB-State Data Exchange Agencies." (Contains 34 figures.) (SLD)
