State Programs for Migrant Children. Kansas Annual Evaluation Report, 1967
Ahlstrom, Clyde J., Comp.
The 1967 annual evaluation of Kansas's Title I (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) State Migratory Program is presented in this report. The program was in operation in 6 school districts during the summer; 447 children from kindergarten to the 7th grade were enrolled. The 5 educational needs of migrant children which were evaluated were (1) their inadequate command of the English language, (2) their need for parental awareness and interest, (3) their lack of knowledge and practice in general health training and personal sanitation, (4) their need for a well-balanced diet and eating habits, and (5) the need for the migratory children to recognize consistent self- and group -discipline. Objective measurements were obtained through the use of the Metropolitan Achievement Test, the Lorge-Thorndyke Intelligence Test, or the Stanford Achievement Test as pre- and post-tests. Standardized test results are given for grades 1-6 in reading and arithmetic. The general effectiveness of the program is discussed in terms of the services provided for the children, the most effective projects for grade span, classroom procedures, program materials, and the activity report from the project areas. Other topics discussed in this report include personnel and personnel training, the program's interrelationship with other Title I programs and its coordination with other programs, community involvement, state operation and services, and the program's problem areas. The appendix concludes the questionnaire about migrant children and letters pertaining to the program planning. (NQ)
