Direct Entry Enrollments of Dade County Public, Special, and Private High Schools. Annual Report Years 1993-94 through 1997-98. Research Report #98-04R.
This report measures the draw of public, private, and special high school graduates to Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC) in Florida. For the public schools, 5 years of enrollment data are presented, spanning 1993-94 through 1997-98. Draw data for Dade County private and public special high schools are for 1997-98. The statistics for the individual MDCC campuses emphasize campus enrollments from any recruitment area, and summaries are provided for four Dade County Community College campuses: North, Kendall, Wolfson, and Homestead. The report focuses on how changes in the percent draw of high school graduates determine whether the college/campus is losing or gaining ground in enrollments relative to graduates, and how changes in the absolute draw give the magnitude of enrollment changes. Results indicate that there were 12,488 graduates from the county's public school system in 1996-97 (representing a sharp decrease in the number of graduates with standard diplomas), 4,975 of whom enrolled at MDCC. Across the five years, there were large decreases in draw within each ethnic group, with decreases in White non-Hispanic enrollments measuring 29%, Black non-Hispanic enrollments 19%, and Hispanic enrollment dropping 12.5%. Tables 1-6 indicate draw according to: (1) ethnic distribution; (2) prior year graduates of all individual Dade County public high schools; (3) the college's total percent; (4) public schools, sorted by the college's total number enrolled; (5) private and special public high schools; and (6) private and special schools, sorted in descending order by the college's total enrollment. Appended are 22 data tables and 9 figures. (AS)
