Educational Options for Migrant Secondary Students.
Morales, Jeanette A.; And Others
Designed to address the need for secondary migrant educators to have access to model secondary programs, the guide highlights some 20 state and national programs that seem to be effective in serving the migrant secondary student. The programs are representative of three types of approaches which have proven to be effective in reducing the migrant student drop-out rate: (1) migrant counseling or advocacy programs which provide tutorial and vocational awareness services and counselors who fill role modeling and support/advocacy functions; (2) work/study or work/experience for migrant students; and (3) academic assistance programs which provide opportunities for migrant secondary students to make up coursework and credits missed due to their mobile lifestyle. Along with a brief program description, the name, address, and telephone number of a contact person is provided for each program. Among the programs described are the Adolescent Outreach Program, Chapter I Migrant Counseling/Tutoring Program, Experience-Based Career Education, Marion Learning Center, After School Tutorial Program, Portable Assisted Study Sequence, Independent Study and Credit Exchange Program, Job Corps, Upward Bound, Talent Search, and College Assistance Migrant Program. The guide also outlines some of the primary educational needs faced by secondary students. (NQA)
