“Fast Facts” from National Center for Education Statistics

NCES publishes a plethora of data on a wide variety of educational topics. Fast Facts allows you immediate access to information without having to plow through seemingly endless reports and documents. The data are arranged around broad categories such as assessments and postsecondary education and provide a current overview, usually in a graphic form and supplement the information with direct links to relevant tables and figures. For example, the entry on bullying presents a bar graph on selected bullying problems taken from the Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2013 and then lists various links to specific additional resources.  For an easy way to find germane statistics and links to other sources, this is a place to come to.
