Texas Project for the Education of Migrant Children, 1967-68. Evaluation Report.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Impact and effectiveness of the Texas Project for the Education of Migrant Children and other such programs are examined. Solutions to the educational problems which face the migrant student within the operational framework of an on-going school system are outlined. Two representative innovations in Texas, a nongraded system and bilingual education, are briefly discussed. Evaluative data are included which were obtained by means of opinionnaires and standardized tests, with teacher-developed tests used less extensively. Methods are presented for coordinating the Texas Project with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the National Defense Education Act and for involving parents and the community. A summary is given of staff development via workshops and various institutes for teachers, aides, and administrators. Also included are brief descriptions of the Texas Migrant Interstate Cooperation Project, the Migrant Compensatory Education Project, and the Migrant Preschool Education. (CM)
