REALITY, RESPONSIBILITY AND RESPECT IN THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN FROM FAMILIES WHO FOLLOW THE CROPS.
HEFFERNAN, HELEN
THE INTERRELATEDNESS OF THE EDUCATION, NUTRITION, HEALTH, CLOTHING, SOCIAL CUSTOMS, AND HOUSING PROBLEMS OF THE MIGRANT CHILD ARE DISCUSSED WITH THE POINT BEING TO SHOW THEIR IMPORTANCE AND THE EFFECT OF THEIR LACK ON A CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT. FURTHER DISCUSSION TAKES UP THE EFFECT OF THESE FACTORS UPON THE CHILD'S PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT AND HIS ADJUSTMENT TO A DIFFERENT CULTURAL SETTING. THE INFLUENCE OF THE MIGRANT CHILD'S LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, READING, WRITING, SPEAKING, AND THE ARTS, UPON HIS ENVIRONMENT MUST ALSO BE CONSIDERED. THE PAPER CONCLUDES WITH A DISCUSSION OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S RESPONSIBILITIES TO THESE MIGRANT WORKERS, UPON WHOM THEY DEPEND SO MUCH. CHILD CARE CENTERS, ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION, SUMMER SCHOOLS, PRE-SCHOOLS, AND BETTER HOUSING MUST BE PROVIDED. AN EFFORT SHOULD ALSO BE MADE TOWARD PARENT-TEACHER COOPERATION TO FOSTER BETTER RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE MIGRANTS AND THE COMMUNITY. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE FOURTH ANNUAL STATEWIDE CONFERENCE ON FAMILIES WHO FOLLOW THE CROPS, SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, FEBRUARY 1964. (CL)
