1972 Migrant Education State Evaluation Report [North Carolina].
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
Having identified the migratory agricultural workers in North Carolina, the State has increased its efforts towards providing them physical, dental, and mental health care; vocational and employment counseling; day care; food; and emergency assistance. The State has also established programs and projects designed to meet the special educational needs of the children of migratory workers and has coordinated these programs and projects with similar ones in other States. This report contains a summary of these programs and projects, including recommendations for improvement of future programs. Staff development activities, children served, program activities, community involvement, and program objectives and effectiveness are topics discussed under the title of regular school term migrant programs. Findings for summer programs include teacher-pupil ratios, interrelationship with the regular Title I program, equipment purchases, interstate services, dissemination, and local efforts. Changes in this 1972 evaluation, as compared to the 1971 plan, include more efficient scheduling of the on-site visits, increased emphasis on needs assessment at both project and individual levels, expanded use of local project personnel as on-site evaluators, and improved proposal preparation procedures. It is suggested that, as a result of this evaluation, the numerous improvements could be characterized as procedural, managerial, and evaluative, with special emphasis upon raising the local status of the projects.
