Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the educational trend from 1899-1900 to 1929-1930 inclusive, using pupil attendance and length of school term. The following four questions are investigated.

1. What change in average daily attendance in the public schools of New Mexico has occurred during the period 1899-1900 t 1929-1930 inclusive? How does the percentage change in average daily attendance in New Mexico compare with the percentage change in average daily attendance in the United States as a whole, in the other states, and particularly in the states of the Rocky Mountain area?

2. Did average daily attendance for each one hundred enrolled in the schools of New Mexico increase or decrease between 1899-1900 and 1929-1930 inclusive? Does the percentage change in the schools of New Mexico compare favorably with the percentage change in the United States as a whole and in the other states, particularly in the states of the Rocky Mountain region?

3. What changes occurred in the length of the school term in New Mexico between 1899-1900 and 1929-1930 inclusive? How does the percentage change in the length of the school term in New Mexico compare with the percentage change in the United States as a whole and in the other states, particularly in the states of the Rocky Mountain area?

4. Did the number of days each child attended school in New Mexico increase between 1899-1900 and 1929-1930 inclusive? How does the percentage change compare with the percentage change in the United States as a whole and in the other states, particularly in the states of the Rocky Mountain area?
