Borgrink, Henry, Comp.
This profile summarizes and analyzes data to provide a broad range of educational indicators of the operation and performance of New Mexico's 88 school districts. The profile looks at the dropout rate and student enrollment, including the number of students receiving public assistance, special education, and bilingual education. Also studied are: the pupil/teacher ratio and teacher loads in various grade levels; the number of certified staff, including degrees and years of experience; proficiency examinations and the number of graduates; and the results of standardized achievement tests (Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills). Vocational education information is also reported. Section 1 of the document is a summary overview of the statewide data, gathered over a 3-year period. The data indicate that the number of New Mexico students is increasing as is the diversity of their needs. Forty-seven percent of the students are Anglo, 40% are Hispanic, and 10% are Native American. Of the teachers, about 70% are Anglo, 24.2% are Hispanic, 1.6% are Native American, and 1.2% are Black. The document includes charts and graphs to show both statewide performance and performance for each school district. (TES)
