Mobile Head Start Program for Migrant Children and Parents. Final Report and Strategies for Continuation Activities.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
In the summer of 1969, the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory undertook the implementation of a Mobile Migrant Project to serve a designated group of preschool migrant children. The project was to consist of (1) a summer program in 1969 in at least 2 "in trek" locations, (2) integration in the 1969-70 school year with the McAllen Early Childhood Demonstration Center, and (3) a summer program in 1970 in mobile situations. Major purposes were to design instructional materials for use by migrant children, to collect and report information concerning the total migrant situation, and to propose strategies for amelioration of the educational handicap incident to migration, low economic standing, and cultural differences. This report summarizes the program activities and resultant findings throughout the 18-month period. Proposed strategies to provide educational continuity for migrant students are included, with cost estimates and priority rankings for implementation. (JH)
