BENNER, RALPH; REYES, RAMIRO
THE FISCAL YEAR 1967 CALIFORNIA PLAN FOR THE EDUCATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN INCLUDED 21 PROJECTS REACHING 9,671 CHILDREN. BILINGUAL TEACHER AIDES AND COLLEGE-STUDENT TEACHER ASSISTANTS, MANY OF WHOM WERE MEMBERS OF MIGRANT FAMILIES, WERE USED SUCCESSFULLY IN THE VARIOUS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS. EACH EDUCATIONAL CENTER IN ONE REGIONAL PROGRAM INCLUDED DAY CARE SERVICES, INDIVIDUAL STUDY PROGRAMS, ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS, FOOD SERVICES, MEDICAL SERVICES, RECREATION PROGRAMS, AND INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS. A PRIMARY GOAL OF THE PLAN WAS COMPLETE INTEGRATION OF MIGRANT CHILDREN WITHIN THE REGULAR CLASSROOM. MAJOR PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WERE LANGUAGE DIFFICULTIES (85 PERCENT OF THE MIGRANT CHILDREN WERE MEXICAN OR MEXICAN-AMERICAN), UNCERTAINTY OF FEDERAL FUNDING, AND THE ELUSIVENESS AND VARIETY OF THE MIGRANT POPULATION.
