Texas Migrant Labor. Annual Report, 1969.
Good Neighbor Commission of Texas, Austin.
Among the responsibilities of the Good Neighbor Commission of Texas are (1) a survey of conditions and (2) a study of problems related to migrant labor in Texas. This annual report of the 1969 migrant scene shows the results of that survey and study. Beginning with an overview of Texas migrant labor, which goes back several years and includes a current map of travel patterns, the report takes up Texas agricultural and migrant labor. Migrant programs are cited with descriptions of their goals and funding agencies. The Migrant Farm Labor Center in Hope, Arkansas, is described as an example of a full-service center, for the benefit of the migrant farm worker and his family. Information on alien labor and immigration is presented next and touches on legal and illegal commuting. Current developments are discussed in terms of migrant child education, adult migrant education, migrant teacher preparation, bilingual education, housing, health, border industrialization in Mexico, and migrant economics. Trends in migration and a summary of data complete the report. (BD)
