Annual Report of the Texas Child Migrant Program, 1971-72.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Evaluation.
The child of the migratory agricultural worker is a special problem due to his mobility and difficulties in using the English language. Funded by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I, the Texas Child Migrant Program was developed to provide an educational opportunity for the migrant child which would enable him to function within society. During the 1971-72 school year 48,848 students from 123 districts participated in the program. Approximately 98 percent of these were Mexican Americans. Two types of programs were operated--the Minimum Foundation Program 7-month School and the regular school term program. Most of the non-Mexican American students participated during the regular school term. These programs primarily served grades 1-9, but some projects also served grades 10-12. This 1971-72 annual report serves as summary and evaluation of the activities and services provided during the year for migrant children. Information is given on the: 7-month and regular school term programs; school districts' interpretation of the program; participants; pupil services; instructional activities; testing program; dropouts; graduate follow-up; parental involvement; program personnel; and the summer program.
