The NCES updated its websites on rural and urban education.

The websites, which draw primarily from data collected by NCES and the Census Bureau, compiles and disseminates data on rural and urban education in four general areas: 1) students, 2) teachers, 3) school environment, and 4) finances. Examples of specific topics within these areas are enrollment and participation rates by race/ethnicity, disability and English proficiency status, and poverty, student performance, school discipline and school crime data, and revenues and expenditures of districts.
