Questions and Answers: Program for Migrant Children under ESEA Title I, 1970.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Programs for the Disadvantaged.
Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 is specifically designed to help educationally deprived children. It was amended in 1966 to include the children of migratory agricultural workers. Today more than 235,000 migrant children receive educational and special supplementary services under Title I. This booklet is designed to answer some of the questions which are frequently asked about the participation of migrant children in the Title I migrant program. The most basic facts about the program and its administration are discussed in terms of eligibility of state education agencies for receiving funds, eligibility of children for participating in Title I programs, eligibility of projects for receiving funds, and interstate cooperation. For more detailed information about program operations in a specific locale, institutional staffs and other interested persons should contact their state or local education agencies. (Author/JH)
