Hamlin, Thomas M.
In an effort to discover the number of migrant children that leave the migrant stream and enter the urban area of Rochester, New York, the State University College at Geneseo, New York, sponsored this 1968-69 study. The purpose was to determine if the migrant child is adequately cared for when he enters the urban area and if the educational institutions adequately provide for him. It was believed that the study would also give a picture of the approximate number of migrant children entering other urban areas of New York State. Interviews were conducted among approximately 433 migrant families. Teachers of the migrant children were also interviewed, and contacts were made with local agencies that provided aid to families. General findings are reported in terms of demographic data, and the migrant child's school grades (reading and mathematics), behavior, and attendance. Special projects (Federal, state, foundation, and experimental) available to the migrant are described in the document, and 10 conclusions are cited. (EL)
