The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) fulfills a congressional mandate to collect and report "statistics and information showing the condition and progress of education in the United States and other nations in order to promote and accelerate the improvement of American education." The "Quarterly" offers a comprehensive overview of work done across all of NCES. Each issue includes short publications and summaries covering all NCES publications and data products released in a given time period as well as notices about training and funding opportunities. Following the "Note from NCES" by Val Plisko, discussing the findings from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLS-K), and how they relate to this cohort's educational progress and success, articles in this issue include: (1) From Kindergarten through Third Grade: Children's Beginning School Experiences (Amy Rathbun and Jerry West); (2) Invited Commentary: Examining Patterns of Development in Early Elementary School Using ECLS-K Data (Sean F. Reardon); (3) The Summer after Kindergarten: Children's Activities and Library Use by Household Socioeconomic Status (David Meyer, Daniel Princiotta, and Lawrence Lanahan); (4) 1.1 Million Homeschooled Students in the United States in 2003 (Daniel Princiotta, Stacey Bielick, and Chris Chapman); (5) Revenues and Expenditures for Public Elementary and Secondary Education: School Year 2001-02 (Crecilla Cohen and Frank Johnson); (6) English Language Learner Students in U.S. Public Schools: 1994 and 2000 (David Meyer, David Madden, and Daniel J. McGrath); (7) Teacher Attrition and Mobility: Results From the Teacher Follow-Up Survey, 2000-01 (Michael T. Luekens, Deanna M. Lyter, and Erin E. Fox); (8) Who Teaches Reading in Public Elementary Schools? The Assignments and Educational Preparation of Reading Teachers (David Meyer and Daniel J. McGrath); (9) A Decade of Undergraduate Student Aid: 1989-90 to 1999-2000 (Christina Chang Wei, Xiaojie Li, and Lutz Berkner); (10) Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 1976 to 2001 (Stephen Provasnik and Linda L. Shafer); and (11) Federal Support for Education: Fiscal Years 1980 to 2003 (William C. Sonnenberg).
