THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN IN OREGON.
PETRIE, RONALD G.
THE MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM CONSISTS OF THE REGULAR SCHOOL YEAR AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS DURING THE SUMMER. THE PILOT SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS HELD IN 1961 AND 1962 AND THE PROGRAM DURING THE REGULAR 1961-62 SCHOOL YEAR ARE DISCUSSED. OBJECTIVES ARE TO SUPPLEMENT THE REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAM, TO ANSWER QUESTIONS CONCERNING EFFECTIVE METHODS, MATERIALS, AND APPROACHES FOR INSTRUCTION, AND TO COLLECT AND REPORT DATA RELATING TO CONTINUATION OF SUCH PROGRAMS. THE SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS ARE EFFECTIVE IN OVERCOMING EDUCATIONAL DEFICIENCIES. THE YEARLY INCREASE IN ATTENDANCE INDICATES THAT THE MIGRANTS ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING THEIR CHILDREN ACQUIRE AN EDUCATION. SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS SHOULD BECOME A PERMANENT PART OF THE MIGRANT EDUCATION PROGRAM, THE PRESENT APPROPRIATION OF $50,000 SHOULD BE INCREASED TO $60,000 IN THE 1963-65 BIENNIUM TO ALLOW FOR EXPANSION OF PRESENT PROGRAMS AND THE ADDITION OF NEW SCHOOLS. THE REGULAR SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM IS GEARED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN. CHILDREN BENEFIT FROM SPECIAL PROGRAMS WHICH EMPLOY EXTRA TEACHERS IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CLASS LOADS EQUITABLE AND ALLOW FOR MORE INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION FOR ALL CHILDREN. THERE IS NEED FOR A WORKSHOP TO DEVELOP A GUIDE FOR MIGRANT EDUCATION AND FOR REGIONAL INSERVICE PROGRAMS TO BE CONDUCTED ANNUALLY FOR TEACHERS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN. THE FORMULA FOR DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS IS EQUITABLE REIMBURSEMENT OF COSTS OF MIGRANT EDUCATION. PROPOSED LAW CHANGES AND A REPORT OF A SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM ARE APPENDED.
