The Somerton Story, Part II. A Progress Report on the Somerton Demonstration School for Migrant Child Education.
Brunstein, James J.
Welcome back to the Somerton School District, Somerton, Arizona. Two years have passed since the writing of the first part of the "Somerton Story" (see RC 003 374). Since that time, the Somerton district has been able to realize some of its goals for the improvement of education for all of its migrant children. Some changes have been made, the attempt to "refine" the instructional program has been successful, and a few new programs have been added. All of these activities are described in the document under the following headings: Coordinators of Instruction, Teacher Training, Open Houses, Parent Conferences and Grading, Home Visitations, O. L. Carlisle School League, Adult Education, Rotary Club Help, Television Magic, The Record Transfer System, Teacher Exchanges and Consultation, Evaluation, and Rewards for Achievement. (EJ)
