FM Radio; An Oral Communication Project for Migrants in Palm Beach County.
Early, L. F.
This report gives a full description of the broadcasting and operation of WHRS-FM, a FM radio station established by federal grant to serve migrant workers and their children in Palm Beach County, Florida. The goal of the project was to evaluate FM radio as a solution to the serious economic and educational problem of communicating with the migrant family. Specific aims included reducing children's absenteeism and increasing the participation of the family in school-related activities. Cooperation between the radio station and many local agencies permitted many specific local needs to be met. This document provides background information, economic data, program descriptions, lists of cooperating agencies, and rudimentary program evaluation which shows it to be effective. This document is reproduced from the best available copy. (RB)
