National Center for Education Statistics
This document is a one-page summary of "The Condition of Education 2009". "The Condition of Education" is a congressionally mandated report that provides an annual portrait of education in the United States. The 46 indicators included in this year's report cover all aspects of education, from early childhood through postsecondary education and from student achievement to school environment and resources. Primary highlighted findings include: (1) Enrollment in American elementary and secondary schools continues to rise to all-time highs; (2) Younger learners continue to show gains in educational achievement over time; and (3) Overall achievement levels of secondary school students have not risen over time, but there are some increases in the percentages of students entering college after high school and earning a postsecondary credential.
