Critical Facts and Data about US Education

A nonprofit report and two federal reports from the US Department of Education provides authoritative information:

The Institute Education Sciences released the new 2005 Digest of Education Statistics by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) provides an enormous database of facts covering topics in pre-kindergarten education through graduate school. Topics include: numbers of institutions, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, along with information about educational attainment, finances, federal funds for education, employment and income of graduates, libraries, and international comparisons.

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) released The Condition of Education 2006. This annual report summarizes developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The 2006 report presents 50 indicators on the status and condition of education and an analysis of international assessments.\

Another very useful report is a Public Education Primer (Basic (and Sometimes Surprising) Facts about the U.S. Education System) by the Center on Education Policy.

Together, these reports fuel writers, speakers and researchers needs for accurate and complete information about American education.
