120 years of American education : a statistical portrait by United States( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compilation aggregates all relevant statistics about the history of the U.S. educational system into one convenient book. The statistical surveys of what is now the National Center for Education Statistics date from 1870. The level of detail in the surveys by this office gradually increased until, by 1920, the statistical program included a detailed breakdown of public school expenditures by purpose and of higher education income by source of funds. Expansion has continued through the new national surveys of recent years. Chapters review education characteristics of the U.S. population over the years; and the status of elementary school, secondary school, and higher education in U.S. history. Twenty-one figures illustrate trends in: (1) enrollment; (2) level of schooling completed; (3) income of graduates; (4) attendance; (5) teachers; (6) student-to-teacher ratios; (7) numbers of high school graduates; (8) sources of revenue; (9) expenditures; (10) graduates from higher education; (11) revenue sources for higher education; and (12) expenditures in higher education. Thirty-five tables present information grouped by population, elementary and secondary education, and higher education. Two appendixes contain tables which provide information about the state of the nation's economy in the 20th century. (Sld)
Historically Black colleges and universities, 1976-1994 by Charlene Hoffman( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a statistical overview of trends in the development of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). An introductory chapter reviews the history of HBCUs and discusses the current status in terms of enrollment, degrees conferred, staff, salaries, and finances. Nine text figures and 54 summary tables provide detailed data organized into the same categories. Supplemental information is given for all public and private institutions to allow comparative evaluations with all institutions. The report finds that: (1) as a group, HBCUs entered a period of growth during the late l980s, with some of the increase due to a larger proportion of black students choosing HBCUs; (2) over the 1976-1994 period the student racial/ethnic mix became more diversified, especially for degree recipients; (3) the number of degrees conferred has also risen since 1990, due mainly to increased enrollments; (4) financial and faculty resources at public HBCUs are stronger than those at private institutions; (6) faculty salaries at all HBCUs have increased at about the same rate as at all institutions, but nevertheless remain at a lower level than institutions of higher education in general; (7) educational expenditures at all HBCUs have increased, but at a lesser rate than at comparable institutions. Appendixes include a guide to the sources used and the comparability of data, information on methodology, and a glossary. (Ch)

International education indicators : a time series perspective, 1985-1995 by Stéphane Baldi( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report compared educational trends in economically developed countries over time. The countries examined are members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (oecd), an organization of 29 countries dedicated to promoting economic growth and development around the world. In the United States, the 11 years included in this report were marked by increasing awareness of a range of critical issues in education, such as equal access to quality education, violence and drug use in schools, the increasing cost of higher education, the quality of teachers and teacher training, the implementation of technology in the schools, and the relationship between technological changes in the labor market and school curriculum. The indicators in this report permit the assessment of how well the United States has met some of the educational challenges of the past decade and permit the comparison of developments in the United States with those in other developed countries. The 18 indicators presented are divided into 5 sections: (1) demographic and socioeconomic context of education; (2) participation in education; (3) financial and human resources; (4) system outcomes; and (5) labor market outcomes. In the period from 1985 through 1995, there were increases in the rates of enrollment in secondary and higher education in virtually every oecd country. Public direct expenditures on education as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product remained fairly stable across oecd members, and first university degree graduation ratios increased in most oecd countries. Overall, the educational attainment of adults increased in most oecd countries, with the United States having a greater percentage of adults with at least a university education than any other g-7 country. (Contains 18 figures and 64 tables.) (Sld)

Status and trends in the education of Hispanics by Charmaine Llagas( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the educational status of Hispanic Americans, presenting indicators illustrating recent educational gains and existing gaps. Data come from National Center for Education Statistics published reports as well as other federal agencies and organizations. There are four sections with eight chapters. Section 1, "Demographic Overview," includes (1) "Demographic Characteristics." Section 2, "Preprimary, Elementary, and Secondary Education," includes (2) "Participation," (3) "Persistence," (4) "Academics and Achievement," (5) "Social Environments and Parental Support for Learning," and (6) "Student Behaviors." Section 3, "Postsecondary Education," includes (7) "Participation and Context." Section 4, "Outcomes of Education," discusses (8) "Labor Market and Social Outcomes." Much of the recent rise in minority enrollment is attributed to growth in the Hispanic student population. Hispanics have retention and suspension/expulsion rates higher than those of Whites and lower than those of Blacks. They have higher dropout rates and lower graduation rates than Whites or Blacks. While their test scores were higher in 1999 than in 1970s, they were still lower than those of Whites. Over 50 percent of Hispanic students speak mostly English at home. Hispanic college enrollment increased between 1980-2000. There is a positive relationship between education and salary for all racial/ethnic groups, though incomes for Hispanic men are lower than those of white men at most educational levels.
