Total erollaent in pblic elemen-
tary and secondary day schools rose from
31.2 million in 1955-56 to 32.3 Aillion
in 1956-57, an increase of 3.8 percent.
The increase in kindergarten and grades
1 through 8 was 724000, or 3 percent,
as copared with an increase of 16,000,
or 6.5 percent, in grades 9 through 12
(including postgraSates). The average
daily attendance in 1956-57 was 2,871-e
000, or 89.3 percent of the total en-
nrolmsnt.


High School Graduates


A record 1,270,000 pupils were grad-
uated from public high schools in 1956-
57, a gain of 18,000 over the number in
the preceding year. Although boys do
not attend high school to the sam ex-
tent as girls and also have a higher
dropacut rate, they have in recent years
constituted an increasing proportion of
high school graduates, reaching 68.5
percent in 19-S .


il mstricts


.There has been a stead decline in
E amber of local school districts in
ceant years, principally as a result
of reorganization and consolidation of
man and non-operating districts. The
52,700 districts in 1956-57 represented
a reaction of about 2,000 from the nun-
ber in the preceding year. The Great
Laks-and-Plains region, which had 66
percent of the Nation's school districts,
experienced the largest proportionate de-
crease tdring the year--6.5 percent.


Schools


(Inluding One-Teacher Schools)


In spite of the extensive school
building program in the past few years,
the number of elementary schools has
continued to decline, largely accounted
for by the widespread closing of one-
