OREGON PILOT PROGRAM FOR THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN.
PETRIE, RONALD G.
A PILOT PROGRAM STUDIED PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN EDUCATING MIGRANT CHILDREN, RECOMMENDED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND IMPLEMENTED EXPERIMENTAL SUMMER SCHOOLS. TECHNIQUES USED TO ARRIVE AT CONCLUSIONS PERTAINING TO BOTH REGULAR AND SUMMER SCHOOL NEEDS FOR ANGLO AND SPANISH-SPEAKING MIGRANTS INCLUDED A SURVEY, A QUESTIONNAIRE WITH INTERVIEWS, AN ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONS, AND AN ANALYSIS OF INFORMATION COLLECTED BY SCHOOL DISTRICTS. THE MIGRANT CHILDREN WERE EDUCATIONALLY RETARDED. SCHOOLS WERE NOT FINANCIALLY ABLE TO MEET THE PROBLEM OF MIGRANT EDUCATION. ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED TO MEET THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF THE MIGRANT CHILD. MANY SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAD INADEQUATE FACILITIES FOR A LARGE INFLUX OF MIGRANT CHILDREN. THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS RECEIVED VERY LITTLE STATE MONEY TOWARD THE INCREASED COSTS OF MIGRANT EDUCATION. MANY SCHOOLS HAD BEEN NEGLIGENT IN ENFORCING ATTENDANCE LAWS BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF FUNDS AND FACILITIES TO PROVIDE AN ADEQUATE PROGRAM. INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS FOR MIGRANTS WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT NEED TO BE DEVELOPED TO ACHIEVE ADEQUATE EDUCATION PROGRAMS. EVERY SCHOOL AFFECTED BY MIGRANT CHILDREN NEEDS A STAFF SKILLED IN THE TECHNIQUES OF ANALYZING THE EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF THE MIGRANT CHILD. ATTENDANCE LAWS ALREADY ESTABLISHED SHOULD BE ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRESCRIBED REGULATIONS OF SCHOOL STANDARDS. A PERMANENT PROGRAM TO PROVIDE AN INCENTIVE FOR THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN DURING THE REGULAR SCHOOL YEAR SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED, TO FOCUS ATTENTION ON THE COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEETING THE NEEDS OF MIGRANT CHILDREN, AND TO PROVIDE MONEY FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM.
