Minority Student Progress Report 2009: A Snapshot of Arizona's Educational Achievement
Morel-Seytoux, Sylvie
Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education
The Arizona Minority Education Policy Analysis Center (AMEPAC) is a policy center of the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education. AMEPAC's mission is to stimulate, through studies, statewide discussion, and debate, constructive improvement of Arizona minority students' early awareness, access, and achievement throughout the educational attainment process. AMEPAC is proud to provide policymakers, educators, and the public with this expanded fourth edition of the "Minority Student Progress Report 2009: A Snapshot of Arizona's Educational Achievement." This report provides a current "snapshot" of the educational achievement of minority students in Arizona, from kindergarten through postsecondary education. In guiding the reader how best to utilize this report, it is important to clarify that the study does not provide an analysis of why minority educational disparities remain. The focus of the report is to provide comprehensive and accurate baseline information which clearly identifies and reveals the type, extent, and significance of educational attainment disparities as they have occurred and/or changed over the last decade. The reader is thus encouraged to utilize the report's unique findings as a starting point to initiate further studies to uncover the many causalities behind the disparities, and as a tool toward developing effective policy and programming solutions based upon the reports baseline and trend data. Appendices include: (1) K-12 Enrollment Trend by Race/Ethnicity & Gender; (2) K-12 Percentage Enrollment by Race/Ethnicity & Gender; (3) High School Annual Dropout Rates; (4) Four-Year High School Graduation Rates; (5) Advanced Placement; (6) SAT Composite Scores; (7) ACT Composite Scores; (8) Arizona Postsecondary Institutions; and (9) Degrees & Certificates.
