Forester, Christine A.; Drake, Tonya M.
Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education
This document, from the Arizona Minority Education Policy Analysis Center (AMEPAC), reports the educational achievement of minority students in Arizona, from kindergarten through college. As a snapshot it is simply a description of what is, and the data are, thus, open to interpretation. How the numbers look and what they mean may be two different things. Policymakers, educators, and the public should both read and analyze the Report to determine what the numbers mean, for individuals, for organizations, for students, for communities and for the State. Information is provided demographically, for K-12 and for Postsecondary students. Sources of information and a glossary are included. Appendixes include: (A) PK-12 Enrollment Numbers by Grade, Race/Ethnicity, and Gender 1996-97 to 2004-2005; (B) PK-12 Enrollment Percentages by Grade, Race/Ethnicity, and Gender 1996-97 to 2004-2005; (C) Annual Dropout Rate by Race/Ethnicity and Gender High School Students (Grades 9-12) 1994-95 to 2003-2004; (D) Four-Year High School Graduation Rates by Race/Ethnicity and Gender Class of 1993, 1994, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003; (E) Percentage of Advanced Placement Scores 3 or Higher by Race/Ethnicity and Gender 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003; (F) ACT & SAT Number of Test Takers in Arizona by Race/Ethnicity 2002, 2003, 2004; and (G) Degrees Awarded by Race/Ethnicity and Gender 1993-94 and 2003-04.
