"Migrant Education: A Comprehensive Program." Report of the Fiscal 1968 Program for the Education of Migratory Children.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The 1968 report of New York State's program for the education of migratory children presents brief program descriptions and evaluations of all phases of the statewide effort. Objectives for the 1968 program for the special education of the migrant child were (1) to improve self-concept, (2) to develop social and academic skills, (3) to develop language ability and vocabulary, (4) to expand cultural experiences, and (5) to establish sound health and nutritional habits. Among the projects aimed at carrying out these objectives were summer school for pre-kindergarten youth; outdoor education programs; mobile classrooms providing tutorial services to teenagers at labor camps; summer school programs in areas such as language arts, typing, arts and crafts, and swimming; pre-vocational education for teenagers; and teacher workshops and inservice courses. The document is appended with test results of students who participated in the summer migrant program. A related document is RC 004 124. (DK)
