HOW OHIO HELPS MIGRANT CHILDREN.
Elizabeth S. Magee Education and Research Foundation, Inc., Cleveland, OH.
PRESENTED WERE PROBLEMS OF OHIO MIGRANT WORKERS, MOSTLY TEXANS OF MEXICAN BACKGROUND, WHOSE CHILDREN WERE DEFICIENT IN EDUCATIONAL GROWTH. THE GROWTH OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM BEGAN IN 1957 WITH AN INVESTIGATION THAT POINTED OUT THE NEED OF SUCH SCHOOLS FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN. IN 1958, TWO SUMMER SCHOOL CLASSES WERE HELD, IN 1959, THE TWO CLASSES WERE CONTINUED, IN 1960, NINE CLASSES WERE HELD, AND IN 1961, 27 CLASSES WERE HELD. THE GROWTH OF DAY-CARE CENTERS, WHICH WERE SIMILAR TO THE GROWTH OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL CLASSES, BEGAN IN 1957 WHEN 35 CHILDREN WERE CARED FOR IN THE FIRST DAY-CARE CENTER FINANCED BY UNITED STATES CHILDREN'S BUREAU FUNDS. QUOTES FROM SEVEN REPORTS ON SUMMER SCHOOLS AND DAY-CARE CENTERS FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN INDICATED THAT THOUGH THE PROGRAMS WERE NEEDED AND WERE LIKED, IT WAS BECOMING EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE OF THE INCREASING MOBILITY OF THE FARM LABORER.
