EDUCATION FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN.
POTTS, ALFRED M.
THE SIX MIGRANT AREAS IN TEXAS, AND THE NUMBER OF MIGRANTS IN THESE AREAS, ARE DISCUSSED. THE TYPES OF MIGRANTS ARE--HOMEBASE MIGRANTS, IN-MIGRANTS, EMBRYONIC MIGRANTS, AND OUT-MIGRANTS. BUILDINGS, FACILITIES, AND FINANCIAL AID FOR MIGRANT SCHOOLS ARE INADEQUATELY USED. REPRESENTATIVE SCHOOL PROGRAMS FOR MIGRANTS ARE PRESENTED AS EVIDENCE OF STATEWIDE EDUCATION EFFORTS. AID IS NEEDED FOR MIGRANT SCHOOLS. MAJOR NEEDS IN PLANNING FOR THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN INCLUDE WHAT TO TEACH, HOW TO TEACH IT, MATERIALS FOR TEACHING, FINANCES, AND ADEQUATE SPACE. TWO PRACTICES WHICH COULD BE HELPFUL IN WORKING TOWARD A TEXAS PROGRAM OF MIGRANT EDUCATION ARE--A FLEXIBLE STATE AID PROGRAM WITH POSITIVE ENCOURAGEMENT, AND A FREE AND CREATIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD ATTENDANCE, PARENTAL EDUCATION, CALENDAR, CENSUS, AND RECORDS. A PROPOSED REVISION OF THE MIGRATORY FORMULA WILL OFFER SOME FINANCIAL AID, HOWEVER, A REMEDIAL PROGRAM SHOULD ALSO BE PROVIDED. ADDITIONAL LAWS, RULES, AND REGULATIONS ARE NEEDED FOR MIGRANT EDUCATION. WORKING CONTRACTS WITH STATE AND NATIONAL AGENCIES, LIAISON BETWEEN INTRASTATE REGIONS, AND ADVISORY AND GUIDANCE COMMITTEES SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS EFFECTIVE PRACTICES. SUCH PROCEDURES AS VISITS, LETTERS, AND QUESTIONNAIRES USED TO LOCATE MIGRANTS IN SCHOOLS ARE EXPLAINED AND EXAMPLES ARE SHOWN.
