WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
BACK TO SCHOOL
Profile America — Saturday, August 23rd. It's still summer break for many kids, but already in progress is one of the nation's largest seasonal events; one that exchanges leisure for classroom study. It's back to school time. From nursery school to college, over 78 million students are headed to the classroom — that's more than one-out-of-four of the total U.S. population age 3 and over. Of the nearly 9 million Americans ages 20 and 21 years old, over 51 percent are enrolled in college. For women, that figure nears 56 percent. Nursery school or kindergarten enrollment is about 8.8 million. There are nearly 33 million students in elementary schools and 17 million high school students. Some 190,000 high school students are over the age of 25. Profile America is in its 17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
