Data Points

Occasionally I wonder how many K-12 public schools, districts, teachers, administrators and students are there in the United States? What are the top ten largest school districts? How long do administrators serve? Etc.

Maya Riser-Kositsky who writes for Education Week, American Education's Newspaper of Record, has spent some time and labor finding these kinds of data using sources from the U. S. Department of Education, National Center for Eduction Statistics; U. S. Department of Commerce, Census Bureau; The Broad Center; Education Week Research Center, 2018.

So if you are interested in what she found here you go!

Ms. Riser-Kositsky has made this an easy read.

And if you are interested in some similar data points for Minnesota, this summary from the Minnesota Department of Education should help.
