SOUTHWESTERN STATES DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECT RELATING TO EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF ADULT AGRICULTURAL MIGRANTS. THE ARIZONA REPORT.
MOORE, HAROLD E.; SCHUFLETOWSKI, CHARLES
A STUDY OF EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF MIGRANTS WAS CONDUCTED FROM SEPTEMBER THROUGH DECEMBER, 1964, IN ARIZONA, COLORADO, NEW MEXICO, AND TEXAS. THIS REPORT, CONCERNED WITH THE ARIZONA STUDY, IDENTIFIED THE MOST COMPLICATED PROBLEM AS THE LACK OF A COORDINATED ATTACK ON MIGRANT SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, HEALTH, AND EDUCATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS BY LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL AGENCIES. AFTER THE SURVEY OF STATE PROBLEMS, TWO MARICOPA COUNTY COMMUNITIES WERE SELECTED TO PROVIDE MORE SPECIFIC DATA. EMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED INCLUDE--(1) CHANGES DUE TO THE DISCONTINUATION OF THE MEXICAN BRACERO PROGRAM, (2) DORMITORY VERSUS FAMILY HOUSING UNITS AND SANITATION CONDITIONS, (3) LOW WAGES, (4) POOR DIETS, CONSISTING MOSTLY OF CARBOHYDRATES AND LACKING IN PROTEINS, AND (5) ALCOHOLISM AND ITS EFFECT ON JOB PERFORMANCE. CURRENT PROGRAMS SURVEYED WERE THE MIGRANT FAMILY HEALTH CLINIC, THE MIGRANT MINISTRY, A DENTAL MOBILE FIELD CLINIC, A TRAINING PROGRAM IN HOME ECONOMICS, AND SOME PUBLIC SCHOOL PROGRAMS. (SF)
