Nachman, Cynthia P., Comp.
The Third Annual Regional Workshop on Migrant Education was held on March 5-9, 1972 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This conference was for migrant educators from the Eastern Stream states extending from the Gulf of Mexico north to New England. Over 480 participants met, coordinating their ideas and experiences to create a better world for the migrant child. Among the participants were state directors, superintendents, administrators, teachers, teacher aides, home-school coordinators, terminal operators, and school nurses. Speeches and group meetings devoted to interstate cooperation for migrant programs were held during the workshop. Excerpts from some of the speeches and group discussions were given in this booklet. Some topics covered were the Criterion Reference Reading System; vocational education; health; nutrition; recruitment; utilization of teacher aides; the effective use of terminal operators; the stress of communication; use of posters, pamphlets, and pictures; and interstate cooperation for the exchange of teachers, teacher aides, teaching materials, and migrant transfer records.
