"The Condition of Education" is a congressionally mandated report that provides an annual portrait of education in the United States. This document includes information from "The Condition of Education 2009" about knowledge and skills of young children. A smaller percentage of children born in 2001 who were in poverty demonstrated proficiency in various cognitive skills at about 2 years old and at about 4 years old than did their peers who were at or above poverty. Overall the "Condition of Education" reports focus on participation and persistence in education, student performance and other measures of achievement, as well as the environment for learning and resources for education. The 2009 report includes 46 indicators. (Contains 2 figures and 12 tables.) [Information and corresponding tables are taken directly from "The Condition of Education 2009" therefore the pagination may not be sequential. For full report "The Condition of Education 2009," see ED505415. For "The Condition of Education 2009 in Brief," see ED505416.]
