Cavatta, Jerry C., Comp.; Borgrink, Henry, Comp.
The purpose of this report is to provide a broad cross section of data on the operation and performance of New Mexico public schools. Data on school district characteristics (40-Day Average Daily Membership; and percent in kindergarten, bilingual, Chapter 1, and special education programs), teacher characteristics (pupil-teacher ratio, salaries, experience, education, and ethnicity), pupil characteristics (ethnicity, grade repeaters, dropout rate, and mobility), school finance (expenditures per pupil and income), high school graduates, and test results (American College Testing program, Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills, and New Mexico High School Proficiency Exam) are presented for each school district. The profile has three major sections. Section I explains each variable, cites data sources, and briefly discusses the data. Section II contains tables of the actual value of variables used in Section III. Section III presents horizontal bar graph displays of school district and statewide data, arranged alphabetically by school district. The New Mexico school districts are very diverse in community resources and limitations which has a major impact on the data in this report. Conclusions about educational quality in a district or districts cannot be made without additional knowledge of non-educational parameters. (Author/BS)
