A Demographic Study of Delaware's Migrant Population: A. The Flow of Migrant Labor; B. The Migrant School Child.
Thomasson, L.B.; Thomasson, M.E.
A study conducted for the Vocational-Technical Division of the Delaware Department of Public Instruction traced the flow of the migrant population from place of origin through their work period in Delaware and back to their place of origin, described the educational needs of migrant workers' younger children in juxtaposition to what state educational services were available, and interpreted the information gathered. Approximately 4,301 temporary agricultural workers, predominatly Negroes, were reported to have been employed in Delaware during 1967. The 7 nursery schools which the State Department of Public Instruction conducted for the migrant population aged 2 to 6 years during the summer of 1967 attempted to meet both day care and developmental needs of the children. Both aspects of the program were met adequately. Five case studies of migrant children conclude the report. (VM)
