This brief provides results from the most recent National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) survey of technology in private schools, focusing on trends in the availability of and access to technology from 1995 to 1998. In addition, it reports on the future connectivity plans of private schools not connected to the Internet and on the advanced telecommunications training opportunities private schools offer their teachers. The brief describes the marked increase in access to computers and the Internet among private schools and their students from 1995 to 1998. Over that time, the average student to computer ratio decreased from 9:1 to 6:1, while the percent of schools with access to the Internet increased from 25% to 67%. (AEF)
