Summary

This report summarizes the findings of the analyses of data on course offerings in the public secondary schools of the United States. The study on academic trends during the 1972-73 and 1981-82 school years focused on courses in computer application, foreign languages, mathematics, social sciences, visual and performing arts, and vocational education. Section 1 presents the rationale for the study. Section 2 describes the methodology of the analysis. In the third section, a summary highlights enrollments in each of academic years, the courses which were most frequently offered, and those with the highest enrollment. Section 4 contains a summary of the trends in subject area enrollments over the nine-year period from 1973 to 1982. Section 5 presents tables displaying the findings reported in the previous two sections. The report concludes with a technical appendix describing the survey sample designs of the 1972 and 1982 surveys. (JD)
