Case Study: Albuquerque, New Mexico

Corrales Elementary and Valle Vista Elementary School might both in the Albuquerque public school district, but they have significant differences in location and student population. Corrales Elementary is in an affluent, rural community, while Valle Vista is in a low income, urban neighborhood mostly comprised of Spanish-speaking residents. Each community is connected by historic irrigation ditches designed to transport water for crops. Community members use the service roads bordering these ditches as makeshift pedestrian paths to reach commercial areas, schools and other neighborhoods.
