COORDINATION OF PROGRAMS FOR MIGRANTS, WORKING PAPER FOR NATIONAL MEETING ON MIGRANT PROBLEMS.
WEY, HERBERT
TITLE III-B OF THE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964 AND TITLE I OF ESEA REPRESENT THE FIRST MAJOR FINANCIAL EFFORTS DIRECTED TOWARD THE PROBLEMS OF EDUCATING MIGRANT CHILDREN. OEO HAS ESTABLISHED LITERACY CENTERS FOR ADULTS, AND MADE VOCATIONAL TRAINING AVAILABLE TO MANY MIGRANTS. THE STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION, WITH MONEY FROM ESEA, HAVE BEGUN TO DEVELOP, COLLECT, AND DISSEMINATE MIGRANT EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS, AND IN A FEW INSTANCES HAVE INITIATED INTERSTATE COOPERATION, WHICH IS A DEFINITE REQUIREMENT IF MIGRANT EDUCATION IS TO BE SUCCESSFUL. FURTHER EFFORTS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TOWARD THE ORGANIZATION OF A NATIONAL NETWORK OF MIGRANT EDUCATION CENTERS WHICH WOULD HAVE AS ITS OBJECTIVES THE FOLLOWING--(1) COORDINATION OF ALL MIGRANT PROGRAMS, (2) EXTENSIVE EXPERIMENTATION IN MIGRANT EDUCATION, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, (4) TRAINING AND RETRAINING OF TEACHERS OF MIGRANTS, (5) TRAINING OF MIGRANT AIDES, (6) TRAINING OF MIGRANT SPECIALISTS, (7) PROVISION OF CONSULTANT ASSISTANCE, AND (8) THE EVALUATION OF THOSE PRESENT AND FUTURE MIGRANT PROGRAMS WHICH RECEIVE FUNDS FROM STATE AND FEDERAL SOURCES.
