Information on student enrollment, staff, and graduates in the public schools is summarized, drawing on information from the State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary and Secondary Education, School Year 1993-94. In the 1993-94 school year, there were 43.4 million students enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Of these, 24.3 million were in prekindergarten through grade 6, with an additional 18.2 million in grades 7 through 12, and 0.8 million in ungraded classes. California had the largest student enrollment, and the District of Columbia the smallest. About 2.5 million teachers provide instruction for these students. The ratio of total teachers to total students for the nation was 17.4 students per teacher, but this should not be interpreted as average class size since not all teachers are assigned to a class. School staffs included about 451,000 teachers' aides, 33,000 instructional coordinators, 83,000 guidance counselors, and 51,000 school librarians. Some 2,233,000 students received regular high school diplomas during the 1992-93 school year, and an additional 53,000 received other types of diplomas. One figure and four tables present the data.
