Florida Associate of Arts Graduates' Follow-Up Outcomes.
This document presents the Florida Associate of Arts (AA) Graduates' Follow-Up Outcomes. The total number of AA graduates has increased by 6.6% between 1990-91 and 1993-94. This increase was not consistent among the three major ethnic groups: Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics. The largest percentage increase was for blacks. Female graduates increased faster than males in both number and percent. The patterns of change in female graduates among the three major ethnic groups were varied. Among males, only blacks steadily increased for the three years, from 412 to 538 or 30.6%. These graduates were followed up by the Florida Education Training and Placement Information Program. The possible outcomes for graduates were continuing education in a public or private university, a community college or a Division of Public Schools institution such as a technical center, employment, or unemployment. The possible continuing education outcomes were combined into university and other. A graduate was classified in only one category with priority being given to continuing education. The overall percentage of students continuing their education declined slightly from 75 to 72. These same patterns were found in female and male outcomes. Black females were the only group that increased their continuing education percentage. (Contains graphs of these outcomes.) (VWC)
