Another "Disadvantaged" Dimension: Educating the Migrant Child. Selected Readings from Project: The Migrant Child.
Pinnie, Anthony F., Ed.
This book is the result of position papers presented at a two-week colloquy dealing with the child of the migratory laborer, and held on the campus of Cheyney State College from June 24 to July 5, 1968. This colloquy was made possible through federal funds provided under the Migratory Amendment, Title I, ESEA. The objective of the conference was to have consultants and participants pool ideas in an effort to improve the education of that student who is the child of the migratory laborer. After the problem areas were defined and the needs of the migrant ascertained, each consultant was requested to prepare a paper relating his area of expertise to one particular aspect of the problems confronting the migratory child. Participating in the colloquy were 13 consultants and 24 educators who were currently teaching migrant children or who had an interest in this particular type of student. Of the 37 papers presented, 22 were selected by the editor as representative of the four areas of concentration: "The problem defined: Educational needs of the child of the migratory laborer"; "The family and community of the migratory laborer"; "Language barriers facing the student who is a migrant"; and, "Suggested curriculum, methods, materials and programs for educating the migratory student."
