EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN OF MIGRATORY AGRICULTURAL WORKERS IN WISCONSIN.
LINDSEY, HERBERT H.; WALTON, THOMAS W.
THIS STUDY DEMONSTRATES THE FEASIBILITY OF ANTICIPATING THE NUMBER LOCATION, ARRIVAL TIME, AND DURATION OF THE STAY OF MIGRANT WORKERS IN ORDER TO PLAN A PROPER PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN. THE DATA SUGGESTS THAT SCHOOLS SHOULD PLAN FOR A MIGRANT POPULATION EDUCATIONALLY RETARDED FROM 1-4 YEARS, WITH THE RANGE ADVANCING WITH THE AGE, INABILITY OF MANY TO SPEAK ENGLISH WELL. THE CURRICULUM GUIDE LISTS BOOKS OF HIGH INTEREST AND LOW VOCABULARY LEVEL. ADVANTAGES OF INSTITUTIONALIZED EDUCATION ARE THE ENHANCEMENT OF LEARNING AND THE CONTINUITY OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, WHICH WAS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE FORMERLY SECTARIAN CONTROLLED MIGRANT SCHOOLS. EMPLOYERS SHOULD INFLUENCE PARENTS TO SEND CHILDREN TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AS FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE. ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD NOT BE TOLD THAT EDUCATING THE MIGRANT CHILD IS THE SAME AS EDUCATING THE AVERAGE CHILD, BUT NEITHER SHOULD THEY VIEW THE PROJECT AS HOPELESS OR IMPOSSIBLE. THE EDUCATION OF THE MIGRANT CHILD IS A RESPONSIBILITY OF RESPONSIBLE SOCIETY.
