An Assessment of Needs Related to the Education of Migrant Children in the State of Washington.
Krebs, Robert E.; Stevens, Gail A.
The purpose of the study, as stated, was to identify and arrange educational needs of migrant children and make recommendations for programs with the objective of improving and equalizing educational opportunities for children of migrant families in the State of Washington. The assessment was based on lay people and educators incorporating the thoughts of people of all ages to generate the guidelines for the Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Education staff in the development of future programs. In addition to the discussion related to the problems of the migrant child, recommendations are made for provision of compensatory programs, training programs for bilingual paraprofessionals, "alternative" educational programs, mobile facilities, performance contracting, and use of the educational voucher. A partial listing of migrant centers and service organizations in the United States is appended. (EL)
