PICTURE NEEDS MORE FOCUS
Based on the Following criteria:
Albuquerque youth with positive adult role models fell by 17% between 1995-2005, and those with 20 or more of the 40 possible Developmental Assets fell 5% over the same period. The number of students who reported having a sense of purpose fell by 27%. The number reporting a caring, encouraging school climate (26%) remained unchanged over the same 10 year period. The percent of teens who are neither working nor going to school has been stable over the last 3 years.
Albuquerque Public School students are virtually equal to the national average in the number of Developmental Assets they possess, for students grades 6-12. APS students initially lag behind the national average by about 3%, by the time they reach the 12th grade Albuquerque students are equal to the national average in the number of assets they possess. Albuquerque's youth have a higher rate of not attending school and not working than four of five Southwest peer cities.
In 2011, Albuquerque citizens ranked this desired condition 10th of 57 surveyed conditions in importance, while simultaneously being a condition with some of the least progress having been made. It ranked 51st in progress.
