This publication contains a sample of the 40 indicators in The Condition of Education 2005. Since 1870, the federal government has gathered data about students, teachers, schools, and education funding. As mandated by Congress, the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) annually publishes a statistical report on the status and progress of education in the United States. The Condition of Education includes data and analysis on a wide variety of issues. The indicators in the 2005 edition are in six sections: Participation in Education; Learner Outcomes; Student Effort and Educational Progress; Contexts of Elementary and Secondary Education; Contexts of Postsecondary Education; Societal Support for Learning. The indicators in The Condition of Education use data from government and private sources. The complete publication includes a special analysis on the teacher workforce and the movement of teachers into and out of this workforce. It also contains additional tables and notes related to each indicator.
