How To Cope with the Transient Child.
Pittman, Eric A.
The effects of a migratory existence on a child are sometimes deep and difficult to overcome. To overcome these problems in our district, we have used orientation by the principal, guidance persons, assistant principal, and/or teacher in an attempt to make the pupil feel wanted and worthwhile. We have also used meetings between the child's parents and the principal to enable parents to counsel their child and help him to adjust. A standard system and timetable of record forwarding could also help overcome many adjustment problems. In our district, migrant students are no longer absorbed into the regular school system. Instead they attend a new migrant student facility, which provides teachers, aides, dental care, eye examinations, a social worker, transportation, and other necessities. An answer to the records transfer problem was provided by the Migrant Student Record Transfer System in Little Rock. During the summer, our migrant facility serves "home-based" migrant children, who are out of the area during most of the regular school terms but return during the summer. (Author/JG)
