Who Will You Teach? Census Bureau's School Demographics

More Educational Data: Census Bureau Releases School Enrollment Demographics: "
The U.S. Census Bureau released its most recent data on school enrollment. The information comes from the Current Population Survey, a statistical survey that the Census Bureau and Bureau of Labor Statistics administer.

Guiding Questions?

  1. How will these facts influence the schooling in your school district?
  2. How does enrollment factor into how much a teacher is paid or how much money a school district receives?
  3. What impact do changing family patterns and economic issues have on children and schools?
  4. In what ways does the adolescent culture shape teenage perceptions and behaviors?

Here is one of the table from the Census Bureau site:
