NCES 2007035 Public-Use Data Files and Documentation: Internet Access in U.S. Public Schools, Fall 2002
Public-Use Data Files and Documentation: Internet Access in U.S. Public Schools, Fall 2002 Abstract This file contains data from a fall 2002 fast-response survey titled “Internet Access in U.S. Public Schools, Fall 2002.” This study was included in a series of fast-response surveys that have tracked access to information technology in schools and classrooms since 1994. These surveys provide trend analysis on the percent of public schools and instructional rooms with Internet access and on the ratio of students to instructional computers with Internet access. NCES released the results of the 2002 survey in the publication “Internet Access in U.S. Public Schools and Classrooms: 1994-2002.” Questionnaires and cover letters for the study were mailed to the principal of each sampled school in early October 2002, requesting that the questionnaire be completed by the technology coordinator or person most knowledgeable about Internet access at the school. Respondents were also offered the option of completing the survey via the Web. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated later in October and completed in December. The final response rate was 92 percent. Respondents were asked about the number of instructional computers with access to the Internet, the types of Internet connections, support of computer hardware/software, technologies and procedures used to prevent student access to inappropriate material on the Internet, and computer availability outside of regular school hours. Respondents also provided information on school websites, the availability of hand-held and laptop computers for students and teachers, and teacher professional development on how to integrate the use of the Internet into the curriculum.

NCES 2006065 Computer and Internet Use by Students in 2003
This report examines the use of computers and the Internet by American children enrolled in nursery school and students in kindergarten through grade 12. The report examines the overall rate of use (that is, the percentage of individuals in the population who are users), the ways in which students use the technologies, where the use occurs (home, school, and other locations), and the relationships of these aspects of computer and Internet use to demographic and socioeconomic characteristics such as students' age and race/ethnicity and their parents' education and family income. This report confirms that patterns of computer and Internet use seen in previous research are observed in more recent data. One of the more important findings presented in the report is that schools appear to help narrow the disparities between different types of students in terms of computer use. Differences in the rates of computer use are smaller at school than they are at home when considering such characteristics as race/ethnicity, family income, and parental education.

NCES 2006030 Digest of Education Statistics, 2005
The 41st in a series of publications initiated in 1962, the Digest’s primary purpose is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. The Digest contains data on a variety of topics, including the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, in addition to educational attainment, finances, and federal funds for education, libraries, and international comparisons. Some examples of highlights from the report include the following items. Enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools rose 22 percent between 1985 and 2005. The fastest public school growth occurred in the elementary grades (prekindergarten through grade 8), where enrollment rose 24 percent over this period, from 27.0 million to 33.5 million. Public secondary school enrollment declined 8 percent from 1985 to 1990, but then rose 31 percent from 1990 to 2005, for a net increase of 20 percent. The number of public school teachers has risen faster than the number of students over the past 10 years, resulting in declines in the pupil/teacher ratio. Between 1994 and 2004, the number of full-time college students increased by 30 percent compared to an 8 percent increase in part-time students. During the same time period, the number of men enrolled rose 16 percent, while the number of women enrolled increased by 25 percent.
