Summary

Information gleaned from the 1970 census and reported herein indicates that (1) more Americans than ever before are going to school; (2) Americans are starting school at an earlier age and staying in school longer; (3) for the first time, the average American adult has completed high school; (4) people who live in urban areas have a higher level of education than do those in rural areas; (5) although a higher percentage of Non-Spanish finish high school than do black students, these minorities are closing the gap; and (6) there is a definite relationship between level of education and the kinds of jobs people hold and how much they are paid. A number of other statistical analyses are presented. (Author/JF)
