This edition of "Projections of Education Statistics" provides projections for key education statistics, including enrollment, graduates, degrees conferred, teachers, and expenditures in elementary and secondary schools. Included are national data on enrollment and graduates for the past 15 years and projections to the year 2017, as well as state-level data on enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools and public high school graduates to the year 2017. State-level data on enrollment and graduates in private schools are not included. This is the first edition of the "Projections of Education Statistics" to include projections of new teacher hires in public and private elementary and secondary schools. The summary of projections provides highlights of the national and state data, while the reference tables and figures present more detail. Appendix A describes the methodology and assumptions used to develop the projections, appendix B presents supplementary tables, appendix C describes data sources, appendix D is a list of abbreviations, and appendix E is a glossary of terms. (Contains 73 tables and 45 figures.) [For "Projections of Education Statistics to 2016. Thirty-Fifth Edition. NCES 2008-060," see ED499358.]
