The demographic profile of district and state are seeming to be directly proportional to each other. Hispanic students are most highly populated in the State that is approximately fifty-two per cent of the total population. While in District also the Hispanic students have the highest rate of the population which is considered to be almost fifty-five per cent of the total population. The population of African American student in the district is considered to be almost nine per cent while in the state it is approximately thirteen per cent of the total population. In the district, there are 0.2 % American Indian while in State there is only 0.4 per cent of students. It seems that there is very less number of Asians in the district as overall in the state there is almost 4.4 % Asian student but in the district, it acquires a percentage of only 0.6. The percentage of the population of two or more races are the same in both state and district which is 2.3% of their total population. In the state, there are approximately 8000 students from Pacific Island but in the district, there is no student from Pacific Island. Whites have a significant population of approximately 32% while overall in the state they have only 27.8% per cent population.
Answer # 5:
According to the research, in the district, approximately 50% of student are at risk of dropping out of school while in the state the percentage of dropping out of school is very much similar that is almost 51 per cent of the total population of students. The reason behind their dropping out has both demographic characteristics such as coming from a family of low income, male, members of an ethnic or racial minority group, or older in age than other students and performance characteristics include lack of earned credits, poor attendance, or poor grades. In the district, the percentage of students having risk factors of economically disadvantaged is considerably high which is considered to be almost 70 per cent while in the state it is less than 60 per cent. The factor of limited English proficiency in both state and district has very much similar percentage which is approximately 19%. So, I concluded that both the district and state face almost equally the challenging risk environment for the students.
Answer # 6:
The enrollment by a program of student percentage pattern in state and district is very much similar. As the highest percentage in both state and district are of Career and Technical which is approximately 25 per cent in the district while 26 per cent in the state. The least number is of gifted and Talented which is 3.6 % in the district while 7.9 % in the state. Bilingual/ESL has 10.8 % in the district and 18.9 % in the state. Similarly, special education is of 10.3 % in the district while in the state it has 9.1 % per cent of the population.
Answer # 7:
As compared to statewide, the district has much better academic records. The percentage of four-year graduation rate is significantly higher than the rate of statewide. The most surprising thing in this state is that almost all African American students have completed their four-year graduation. Similarly, the dropout rate is much lesser in the district than statewide. The four-year graduation rate and drop out is significant to consider as without four-year graduation or with dropout no student can complete their higher education. Moreover, the average SAT score in the district is more than in state while the ACT score is less than in the district than State. Similarly, the SAT and ACT are also significant for knowing the performance of the student.
Answer # 8:
In District, the quality of faculty is better than statewide due to several factors and but still the most concerning thing about the faculty in District is that there is no doctorate teacher at District level and there is only 18 per cent of master's teachers while in state there are approximately 24 per cent of master's teacher. In the district, there are almost 13 per cent students per teacher while in state there is almost 15 per cent student per teacher so as compared to state students in the district can get better attention from their teachers. Similarly, the teacher in the district has an average of almost 16 years' experience while in the state they have almost an average of 11 years' experience.
Answer # 9:
