Education for Farm Migrant Children: Report on the Six-State Project for Developing State Leadership in Improving the Educational Opportunities of Farm Migrant Children.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
The primary objectives of this 6-state project for developing state leadership in improving the educational opportunities of farm migrant children are (1) to coordinate and articulate the efforts of 6 state departments of education (Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Oregon, and Washington) in assisting school systems to identify the educational needs of migrant children and (2) to determine the movement pattern of migrant workers so that the needs of their children may be met successfully. In this report of that project, the educational needs of migrant children are discussed in terms of such factors as equal opportunity, identification and citizenship, attitudes, mastery of English, vocational guidance, living conditions, provision of adequate educational programs at all levels, and supplementary financing. Attainment of project objectives is examined in terms of record transfer systems, model programs, coordination of programs, improvement of educational opportunities, and inservice education programs. In conclusion, 25 recommendations for improvement of educational opportunities for migrant children are listed. Three appendices provide information on records and record transfers. (PS)
