National Goals for Migrant Education.
Cheyney, Arnold B.; Wey, Herbert W.
Allocation of Federal funds has initiated many programs designed to study and solve migrant education problems. Evaluation of the effect of these programs has been after-the-fact, without adequate controls to evaluate an objective which has not been adequately defined. The objectives suggested as national goals in this paper are: (1) develop and extend nutritional and medical care to migrant mothers and children from conception to early school years; (2) arrange conditions so that migrant youth can make a decision to leave or stay in the migrant stream; (3) develop a projection of migrant needs into the future; (4) collect data concerning migrant families; (5) develop coordination and cooperation among states and agencies; (6) develop pre-service and inservice education for teachers of migrants; (7) meet migrant problems at the local level; and (8) maintain constant evaluation of the objectives.
