1971 Migrant Education State Evaluation Report [North Carolina].
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
The 23 supplementary educational programs for children of migrant workers in North Carolina are evaluated in this report covering programs operant during the summer of 1971. Eleven objectives are listed under instructional and supportive services. Preservice conferences and training, and postservice evaluation methods are emphasized. In the state summary of findings, it is noted that the 1971 summer sessions failed to reach the estimated state total of students; grade placement in most elementary projects was made on the basis of student's age and teacher opinion; teacher-pupil ratios ranged from 1:5.4 to 1:81; there was some integration coordination with concurrent programs; attempts were made to involve parents; and equipment purchases were limited. State and local efforts are discussed, and new and exemplary programs are examined. Recommendations for improving the program are made under 4 headings: Project Development and Management; Inservice Training for Migrant Programs; Dissemination Efforts; Evaluations, Monitoring, and Reporting; and New Directions. An appendix contains graphs depicting student achievement (by school) and various evaluation forms. Related documents are RC 005 877 and RC 005 878. (PS)
