SOUTHWESTERN STATES DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECT RELATING TO EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF ADULT AGRICULTURAL MIGRANTS.
ORR, CALVIN R.; AND OTHERS
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO IDENTIFY THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND NEEDS OF ADULT MIGRANT AGRICULTURAL WORKERS AND TO DETERMINE THE EDUCATIONAL TREATMENT OF THESE NEEDS. THE STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION OF ARIZONA, COLORADO, NEW MEXICO, AND TEXAS PLUS THE COLLEGES OF EDUCATION OF ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS, AND ADAMS STATE COLLEGE (COLORADO) COOPERATIVELY CONDUCTED THE STUDY. RESEARCH ASSISTANTS FROM EACH STATE WERE SELECTED. MEETINGS WERE HELD REGULARLY AND RESEARCH DUTIES DELINEATED. THE FOUR INDIVIDUAL STATE REPORTS WERE THEN DRAWN TOGETHER TO PRESENT A COMPREHENSIVE PICTURE OF THE MIGRANCY PROBLEM AND THE EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS. THE MAJOR FINDINGS ARE DISCUSSED UNDER THESE HEADINGS--(1) AMOUNT OF MIGRANCY, (2) NEW TRENDS IN MIGRANCY, (3) THE COMPOSITION OF THE MIGRANT GROUP, (4) THE CULTURE OF MIGRANTS, AND (5) THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANTS. CONCLUSIONS STATE (1) THE PROBLEMS OF MIGRANCY ARE BASICALLY CENTERED ON POVERTY, (2) MIGRANT PROBLEMS MUST BE ATTACKED IN SPECIFIC AREAS PRIMARILY WITH EDUCATION, (3) SPECIAL COUNSELING, EMPLOYMENT, HEALTH AND RECREATIONAL SERVICES, AND COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROGRAMS MUST BE PROVIDED, AND (4) THE MIGRANT PROBLEMS SHOULD BE ATTACKED WITH A COOPERATIVE FOUR-STATE APPROACH.
