PROVIDING EDUCATION FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN.
POTTS, ALFRED M.; REDBIRD, HELEN M.
SINCE 1955 THE COLORADO STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS OPERATED A PROGRAM OF SUMMER SCHOOLS FOR THE CHILDREN OF MIGRATORY AGRICULTURAL WORKERS. IN 1957 A 3-YEAR STUDY WAS FOUNDED TO INVESTIGATE "THE IMPROVEMENT OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION TO MEET THE NEEDS OF MIGRATORY FARM WORKERS." HEREIN ARE INCLUDED DISCUSSIONS OF THE PROBLEMS AND PROGRAMS OF MIGRATORY EDUCATION, THE DEVELOPMENT OF COLORADO MIGRANT FLOW, A SOCIAL PROFILE OF AGRICULTURAL MIGRATORY PEOPLE, THE HISTORY OF MIGRANT EDUCATION IN COLORADO, FINDINGS OF THE TESTING PROGRAMS, ENROLLING MIGRANT PUPILS, SURVEY OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVING MIGRANT CHILDREN IN REGULAR TERMS, AND ORGANIZATION FOR MIGRANT EDUCATION. THE STUDY WAS LIMITED TO THOSE MIGRATORY PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL IN FAMILIES AND ARE DOMESTIC AMERICANS. (APPENDIXES CONTAIN EXAMPLES OF MANY FORMS AND RECORDS USED IN THE COLORADO PROGRAM.)
