An Evaluation of the Special Educational Project for Migrant Children in Dade County Public Schools, Miami, Florida.
Special Educational Project for Migrant Children, Naranja, FL.
Evaluated are the various features of a project for the education of migrant children in a rural section of Florida. The objectives of the program were to ascertain the special educational needs of this population and to develop programs to meet their needs; to offer necessary supplemental and remedial activities and social and educational experiences for kindergarten-age migrant children; and to develop a prototypal pilot program. The kindergarten and language arts programs are described, and information on classroom materials is included. Also reported are the inservice training and adult education activities and the role and functions of the visiting teacher-social worker in migrant communities. An important facet of the project was the introduction of record-keeping procedures which enabled identification of migrant children in the schools. Another feature was the attempt to obtain a psychological evaluation and a record of reading scores of all the migrant children. (NH)
