Study of Modified School Programs for Migrant Children.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The findings, implications, and recommendations of a Texas migrant education study were presented in this report. Objectives were to determine how educational achievement of migrant students in 6-month programs compares with that of students in 9-month modified programs for migrants and with other students in the community, the effects of differences in resources, and the comparison of achievement of migrant pupils enrolled in out-of-state schools while in transit with those not enrolled in out-of-state schools. It was found that none of the programs were making an adequate change in the performance of migrant children and that for all 3 groups the Stanford Achievement Test performance was substantially below national norms. An evaluation of the 6-month extended day migrant school program showed that it required a thorough and constructive review. The major implication was that an in-depth study of migrant education is necessary if adequate solutions are to be developed. (PS)
