Providing for Mobile Populations in Bilingual and Migrant Educational Programs.
Saville, Muriel R.
It is noted that most bilingual and special migrant classrooms segregate children with different native languages despite the social disadvantages and the lower motivation for learning English which accrue as a result of such student grouping. This paper suggests administrative and instructional means for providing for these children within heterogeneous classes, and for the children who must move in and out of classes as their families move with the crops.
