The Comparative Guide to American Elementary & Secondary Schools. 2016/17 Edition
Grey House Publishing
This comprehensive volume offers a snapshot profile of every public school district in the United States serving 1,500 or more students and provides pertinent evaluative and demographic statistics necessary to evaluate educational programs nationwide. This edition includes profiles on 5,797 school districts in the United States, representing 90% of all public school students in the country. This ninth edition of "The Comparative Guide to American Elementary & Secondary Schools" is a comprehensive compilation with more details, more test scores, and more ranking data than the previous edition. The text is arranged by state and each state section is broken down alphabetically by county. Within each county, listings for each school district are arranged alphabetically by city in which the school district headquarters is located. The book is separated into two main sections: State Chapters and National Chapters. The State Chapter section is divided into the following four segments: (1) State Educational Profile; (2) State Public School NAEP Test Scores; (3) School District Profiles; and (4) School District Rankings. The National Chapter section is divided into three segments: (1) National Educational Profile; (2) National Public School NAEP Test Scores; and (3) National Rankings. To further facilitate research, this guide includes two indexes: (1) School District Index: an alphabetical listing of all school districts in this edition, including the city they are located in, and the page number of their detailed profile; and (2) City Index: an alphabetical listing of all cities represented by the school districts profiled in this Guide, and the page number of the school district profile it is included in.
