A Comparison of Laguna-Acoma High School's Class of 1972 With Similar Schools in New Mexico.
Munro, Fern H.
Data collected by the New Mexico State Department of Education in the spring 1973 are used in tables to compare the 1972 Laguna Acoma High School (LAHS) graduating class and other 1972 New Mexico high school graduating classes. The percentage of 1972 LAHS graduates who at the time of the study were involved in post-secondary academic education or vocational training is compared to the averages for the state, for schools having graduating classes of similar size, and for schools with a Native American population of 50% or more. Similar comparisons are made for 1972 LAHS graduates who at the time of the study were employed, unemployed, housewives, or in military service. As LAHS is part of the Grants Municipal School System, comparative figures for Grants High School are included. Findings show that Laguna-Acoma had 47% of its 1972 graduates involved in post secondary academic education, which was also the average for New Mexico; LAHS had 18% of its 1972 graduates involved in vocational post secondary education, while the state average was 19%. Reflected in other categories, no LAHS 1972 graduates were in military service, but 18% were employed, 10% were housewives, and 8% were unemployed. (SB)
