SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL PATTERNS OF THE MOVEMENT OF SEASONAL AGRICULTURAL MIGRANT CHILDREN INTO WISCONSIN, EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN OF MIGRATORY AGRICULTURAL WORKERS IN WISCONSIN, REPORT 2.
LINDSEY, HERBERT H.; AND OTHERS
USEFUL MEANS OF ANTICIPATING THE MOVEMENTS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN INCLUDE ANALYSIS OF CROPS, THE HARVESTING OF WHICH REQUIRES OUT-OF-STATE WORKERS, DISTRIBUTIONAL MAPS OF CROP ACREAGE, NORMAL TIME SCHEDULES FOR CROPS, AND INFORMATION ON AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS. SUCH INFORMATION ASSISTS IN THE PLANNING OF SCHOOL PROGRAMS. IN WISCONSIN, MOST MIGRANT CHILDREN ARE CONCENTRATED IN THE CHERRY AND CUCUMBER PRODUCING AREAS. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE FEWER MIGRANT CHILDREN IN THE VEGETABLE PRODUCING AREAS, THEY STAY IN THE STATE LONGER. THERE ARE 37 LOCALITIES WHICH RECEIVE 25 OR MORE MIGRANT CHILDREN EACH YEAR, THERE ARE 10 GENERAL AREAS THAT RECEIVE 75 OR MORE CHILDREN. SUCH INFORMATION PROVIDES SCHOOL OFFICIALS WITH AN IDEA OF THE NUMBER OF MIGRANT CHILDREN FOR WHOM EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES NEED TO BE PROVIDED. A SIGNIFICANT CHARACTERISTIC TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE PLANNING OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF MIGRANT CHILDREN ARE SPANISH-SPEAKING. TABLES, MAPS, AND CHARTS ACCOMPANY THE TEXT. EMPLOYMENT RECORD FORMS, TABULATION FORMS FOR CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS OF AGE, AND TABLES SHOWING AVERAGE DISTRIBUTION OF CROPS AND UTILIZATION OF OUT-OF-STATE WORKERS ARE APPENDED. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED.
