A Follow-Up Study of Spanish-American Students from the Scottsbluff High School, Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
Quinonez, Arnie A.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the education that Spanish American students received from the Scottsbluff High School, Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Information was collected from 50 former students from the years 1965 and 1968 on their education, present status and suggested school improvements. Data were collected by direct and indirect interviews in: post-school occupations, drop-out ratio, educational progress, and spouse occupation. The investigation revealed that there is a definite trend toward the improvement of the Spanish American's position in the North Platte Valley. It was found that the Spanish Americans were finding more attractive positions in industrial, semi-professional or professional occupations; that there was a tendency for the largest percentage of dropouts to occur in grade 7 and diminish through grade 12; and that there is a definite relationship between the amount of education acquired and participation in community activities.
