Alternate Strategies for Migrant Secondary Education.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The study proposed strategies and suggested solutions to relevant problems for secondary migrant students. Information on needs and problems of the migrant student was gathered from former laboratory studies and a comprehensive review of the literature. Researchers went directly to the persons involved with the problems of the migrant secondary students for information. Two conferences were conducted and information collected from school administrators by a specially-designed questionnaire. Ten problems which were considered the greatest barriers to effective education were selected. Three were selected as primary concerns: dysfunctional school personnel characteristics, particularly teachers, counselors, and administrators; language-communication inadequacy; and dysfunctional student characteristics. Solutions were evolved for the 10 problems by 2 groups of advocate teams. Three levels of strategies were suggested for: (1) improving present programs; (2) program development; and (3) innovations. It was recommended that 1 or more of the suggested alternatives be implemented as soon as possible. (FF)
