REPORT OF THE 1962 SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN OF MIGRANT PARENTS.
LEBARON, WALTER A.; RUEF, WERNER H.
SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS CONDUCTED IN SEVERAL CENTERS FOR CHILDREN OF MIGRANT PARENTS IN NEW YORK STATE WERE DESCRIBED. ATTENDANCE WAS EXCELLENT THROUGHOUT THE 6-WEEK PERIOD. A CHILD CARE CENTER AND TRANSPORTATION WERE PROVIDED. THE BUDGET FOR THE SEVERAL CENTERS VARIED WITH SIZE, PROGRAM, AND SPECIFIC PROBLEMS, EMPHASIS WAS PLACED UPON BASIC SKILLS IN LANGUAGE ARTS AND ARITHMETIC. PROGRAMS IN ART, CRAFTS, MUSIC, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, AND HEALTH EDUCATION AND HABITS WERE TAUGHT BY THE SCHOOL NURSE. INCREASED EFFORT TO PROMOTE GOOD CITIZENSHIP AND THE ABILITY TO GET ALONG WITH OTHERS WAS MADE. TRIPS, ASSEMBLIES, SWIMMING INSTRUCTION, AND OTHER ACTIVITIES STRENGTHENED THE SEVERAL PROGRAMS. A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP AMONG PARENTS, GROWERS, AND THE PUBLIC, HELPED TO PROMOTE THE PROGRAM. CONTINUING CONCERNS OF THE SUMMER SCHOOLS FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN INCLUDE--DEVELOPMENT OF A PHILOSOPHY FOR ELEMENTARY SUMMER SCHOOLS FOR MIGRANTS, RECRUITMENT OF STUDENTS EARLY ENOUGH TO ASSURE A NEAR QUOTA ON OPENING DAY, DEVELOPMENT OF SUITABLE MATERIALS, EXPERIENCES AND ACTIVITIES, CONTINUOUS CONTACT WITH GROWERS, CREW LEADERS, PARENTS, AND INTERESTED AGENCIES, TO MAINTAIN INTEREST IN THE SCHOOLS, DISCOVERY OF INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE AND PROVISIONS FOR THEM, EFFECTIVE INTEGRATION OF SCHOOLS AND CHILD CARE CENTER, IMPROVED COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN MIGRANT SCHOOLS, EFFECTIVE FOLLOWUP OF MIGRANT STUDENTS WHEN THE REGULAR SCHOOLS OPEN.
