State Annual Evaluation Report for Migrant Programs in Pennsylvania, ESEA Title I, Fiscal Year 1974.
Inskip, George B.
Approved under the Migratory Amendment to the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act's Title I, 10 educational programs, designed to allow flexibility in the placement of children as they progressed, were implemented in Pennsylvania during 1974. The 928 children participating in these migrant programs were identified and recruited by social workers, local ministers, project staffs, and the Pennsylvania Council of Farm Workers. School records were used to identify 5-year migrants (those remaining in the state for 5 years). In many programs, children were grouped by needs; and classrooms were ungraded. Bilingual teachers were employed so that they could identify cultural and social needs. In-service training was conducted by each program for all staff prior to its opening, and weekly staff meetings were held for program development and problem solving. A post-session was held to evaluate the programs. Program evaluation was conducted through weekly visits by 4 monitors and at least one by the assistant coordinator, who used evaluative criteria based on the 11 national goals for migrant education. To varying degrees, the 10 projects met the needs of the participating children. This 1974 report presents the evaluation summaries of the: State, individual projects, 11 national goals for migrant education, and Reading is Fundamental Program. (NQ)
