SPECIAL SCHOOL FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN.
POTTS, ALFRED M.
MANY CHANGES HAVE OCCURRED IN MIGRANT CHILDREN OVER THE 5 YEARS THE SPECIAL SCHOOL HAS BEEN IN OPERATION. MOST NOTABLE IS THAT THE CHILDREN ARE MUCH CLEANER AND BETTER BEHAVED. THE CHILDREN ARE ISSUED COMBS, TOOTHBRUSHES, TOWELS, AND SOAP. STUDENTS SHOWER THREE TIMES EACH WEEK AND PERFORM A DAILY ROUTINE OF BRUSHING TEETH AND COMBING HAIR. MILK AND GRAHAM CRACKERS ARE SERVED DURING THE EARLY MORNING AND A COMPLETE MEAL IS SERVED AT NOON. THE CURRICULUM EMPHASIZES READING, HEALTH, SPELLING, WRITING, AND SOCIAL LIVING. MUSIC AND CRAFTS ARE NOT PRESENTED, SINCE THESE ACTIVITIES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE CAMP. ATTENDANCE IS THE MAJOR PROBLEM. REPEATEDLY MENTIONED TEACHER COMMENTS WERE ATTENDANCE PROBLEMS, RETARDATION AND NEED FOR INDIVIDUAL TUTORING, USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS AS HELPFUL TEACHING TECHNIQUES, AND NEED FOR INFORMING THE PARENTS ABOUT THE SCHOOL PROGRAM. GRAPHS SHOW ATTENDANCE, NATIONALITY, HOME BASE, NUMBER ENROLLED BY AGE, AND FORMER SCHOOL EXPERIENCE.
