Report of Title I, ESEA, Migrant Coordinators Meeting.
Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
One hundred and three persons, including 77 state coordinators and administrators representing 43 states, attended a 1966 migrant education meeting sponsored by the U. S. Office of Education. The primary objective of the meeting was to find ways to improve the effectiveness and quality of educational programs for children of migratory agricultural workers. Other specific objectives of the conference were (1) to review state administrative requirements and discuss methods of strengthening state responsibility; (2) to expand further the programs of interstate cooperation as they pertain to the migrant child and his family; (3) to promote more extensive interagency cooperation by familiarizing the new state coordinators with those agencies having responsibility for services to the migrant family; and (4) to discuss practical approaches and techniques involved in the implementation of an interstate system for transfer of records. This report summarizes the major addresses presented and the recommendations by the states to the Office of Education for future action on behalf of migrant children. A list of chairmen of the discussion groups, the participants, the speakers, and consultants is appended. (Author/TL)
