Baldwin, Anne
For a number of years, analyses have been conducted each fall term to determine changes in the draw of high school graduates to Florida's Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC) from the Dade County Public Schools. Findings of the 1997 study, including comparisons with data from studies conducted over the past 5 years, include the following: (1) in 1995-96, there were 13,266 standard-diploma graduates from 25 Dade County public high schools, 39% of whom enrolled at MDCC during 1996-97; (2) for 1996-97, nearly 27% of the White non-Hispanic, 31% of the Black non-Hispanic, and 49% of the Hispanic Dade County high school graduates were drawn to MDCC; (3) during the past 5 years, MDCC's draw of Dade County high school graduates decreased by 934 students, putting it at a five-year low; (4) of the 25 feeder schools, 10 increased in numbers drawn to the college; (5) schools with the largest positive change in draw for 1996-97 were Killian (+45), Sunset (+31), Carol City (+20), Southwest (+17), and Hialeah-Miami Lakes (+16). College-wide comparisons and campus data for specific high schools are provided. (EMH)
