Migrant Children in Florida. The Phase II Report of the Florida Migratory Child Survey Project, 1968-1969, Vol. 1.
Kleinert, E. John; And Others
The Phase II study of the Florida Migratory Child Survey Project had as its primary focus the data obtained directly from migratory workers and public schools. Major objectives of the 12-month study were (1) to obtain an accurate count of migratory workers and children in each Florida county, (2) to determine movement patterns of migratory workers, (3) to determine the number of migratory children enrolled in schools and duration of enrollments, (4) to determine the nature and amount of services offered to migratory personnel by community agencies, and (5) to identify major unmet needs of migratory children. Secondary objectives evolved after the study began. Many of the data were gathered using over 100 trained interviewers. Major chapters report on the distribution and movement of migrant families; family characteristics and economic conditions; health, housing, and social conditions; the Mexican American migratory worker; distribution and movement of migratory children; school enrollments of migrants; educational needs; assessment tests; summary and conclusions; and recommendations for improving the education of Florida's migratory children. The document contains 116 tables, 48 figures, and a bibliography. (Appendices for the document are presented as RC 004 901.) (AL)
