Summary

This yearbook provides a review of research concerning the differences in providing quality education to all children. A number of data sources at both the national and state levels were reviewed in compiling the indicators of educational inputs featured within this report. Four focal points are as follows: (1) the financial resources brought to bear on Minnesota's public-education system; (2) several characteristics of the state's current K-12 teaching force; (3) the changing demographics of the state's student population; and (4) the ratio of teachers and staff to students in Minnesota schools. The yearbook is divided into five chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 describe how tests have changed and provide an overview of learning. Educational inputs and processes, such as school finance and teacher characteristics, are covered in chapter 3, whereas chapter 4 focuses on participation and coursework, attendance, and graduation. The last chapter examines achievement and discusses comparative assessments. Findings include the fact that Minnesota's per-pupil funding has increased over time, but at a slower rate than for the nation as a whole. The average age of teachers has risen dramatically over the past 10 years, with 38 percent of the teachers falling into the 45-54-year-old age bracket. Minority students are characterized by higher rates of poverty, limited English proficiency, and disability. (RJM)
