Digest of US Education Statistics, 2005 - National Center for Education Statistics

The Digest’s primary purpose is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. The Digest contains data on a variety of topics, including the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, in addition to educational attainment, finances, and federal funds for education, libraries, and international comparisons. Some of the highlights include:

  • Enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools rose 22% between 1985 and 2005. The fastest public school growth occurred in the elementary grades (prekindergarten through grade 8), where enrollment rose 24% over this period, from 27.0 million to 33.5 million.
  • Public secondary school enrollment declined 8% from 1985 to 1990, but then rose 31% from 1990 to 2005, for a net increase of 20%.
