Abstract

"The Condition of Education, 2007" summarizes important developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The report presents 48 indicators on the status and condition of education and a special analysis on high school coursetaking. The indicators represent a consensus of professional judgment on the most significant national measures of the condition and progress of education for which accurate data are available. The 2007 print edition includes 48 indicators in five main sections: (1) participation in education; (2) learner outcomes; (3) student effort and educational progress; (4) the contexts of elementary and secondary education; and (5) the contexts of postsecondary education. Each indicator contains a discussion along with a graph or table on the main indicator page, and one or more supplemental tables found in appendix 1. The supplemental tables provide data tables of the estimates used in the indicator discussion as well as additional estimates related to the indicator. Tables of standard errors for applicable estimate tables are available on the Web. The Web version includes the following: the 2007 Commissioner's statement, a user's guide, special analyses from 2000 through 2007, all indicators from this edition, and selected indicators from earlier editions of this report. A glossary and an index are also included. Supplementary notes and tables are appended.
