THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN IN NEW JERSEY.
GATLIN, CURTIS
A MIGRANT EDUCATION DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS UNDERTAKEN TO MARSHAL PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RESOURCES OF THE STATE TO PROVIDE MORE DAYS OF SCHOOLING IN NEW JERSEY FOR MIGRANTS. AIMS INCLUDED ESTABLISHING PUBLIC SUPPORT THROUGH STATE AND LOCAL CITIZENS' COMMITTEES, CONDUCTING SURVEYS TO CHECK POTENTIAL AND ACTUAL ENROLLMENT OF MIGRANT CHILDREN IN LOCAL SCHOOLS, DETERMINING LOCATIONS FOR ADDITIONAL SUMMER SCHOOLS, SECURING FUNDS TO ENLARGE SUMMER SCHOL FACILITIES, AND DEVELOPING A LONG-RANGE PROGRAM TO MEET CONTINUING NEEDS. A CITIZENS' ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON MIGRANT EDUCATION WAS SET UP WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF 19 ORGANIZATIONS IN THE STATE. VOLUNTEER WORKERS VISITED MIGRANT CAMPS TO LEARN HOW MANY SCHOOL-AGE MIGRANTS ARRIVED DURING THE SCHOOL TERM SO THAT EFFORTS COULD BE MADE TO IMPLEMENT A SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM. NAMES OF OFFICERS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF PARTICIPATING ORGANIZATIONS OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE WERE INCLUDED.
