Minkler, Elton D.
The Oregon State Plan for Migrant Education consists of 4 components: the district project programs providing direct services to migrant children; the Migrant Education Service Center; the Eastern Oregon College Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program; and project supervision. During fiscal year 1970, 4,293 students in 16 regular and 11 summer school programs were served. Emphasis was on preschool services, language arts and diversified experience and activities at the elementary level; language arts and vocational and occupational experiences at the junior and senior high school level; and cultural reinforcement. The Migrant Education Service Center provided services to all State projects. The MAT Program, a 12-month comprehensive training program for teachers of migrant children, included courses in linguistics, reading instruction, sociology, anthropology, intern teaching, and field experience. The state migrant education program was supervised by the Migrant Education Unit of the Oregon Board of Education.
