Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Education, Toppenish, WA.
The document provides an overview of the history and purpose of the educational service center for teachers of migrant and Indian children in the State of Washington. The center, a project of the Department of Education of Central Washington College, is located on an Indian reservation in the Yakima Valley in the central part of the state. The extensive truck farming and fruit crops in the area provide seasonal employment for the migrants, thus making an ideal location for the center. As stated, the purposes of the center are (1) to help assure children of migrant farm workers and American Indians pride in their cultural heritage and (2) to assist in the educational training so vital to the future well-being of these children. Among the components of the center are a media library, a curriculum development project wherein materials are geared to the cultural and language needs of migrant and Indian children, and a project of teacher and teacher-aide training. A bibliography is appended. (EL)
