The data presented in this National Education Association report provide facts about public educational resources committed by local, state, and national governments for state and local affiliates, researchers, policymakers, and the public as a tool to examine public education services. Regardless of state-by-state variations, improvements in public education can be measured by summary statistics. Part I, "Rankings 1999," contains rank-ordered statistics for the 50 states and the District of Columbia that identify emerging economic, political, and social trends through state-level data on population, enrollment, attendance, membership, faculty, general financial resources, governmental and school revenue, governmental and school expenditures, and an index of rankings tables. Because of differences in tax systems, provisions for other public services, and population characteristics, readers should supplement ranked data with additional specific information. Part II, "Estimates 2000," provides projections about public school enrollment, employment and compensation of personnel, and finances, as reported by state departments of education. State-level data permit broad assessments of trends in staff salaries, sources of school funding, and levels of educational expenditures. The data do not reflect varying conditions existing among districts and schools within states. The data predict an increase in national enrollment of 113,000 students, an increase in the number of teachers by 53,700, an increase in salaries by 2.4 percent, and a decline of 1.7 percent in expenditures per enrolled student. The share of total public-school financial support by state governments will increase 0.4 percent to 50.0 percent, and federal support will hold constant at 6.9 percent. Readers should be sensitive to the fact of substantial state and local variations in all projections. (Contains glossary of terms.) (TEJ)
