Migrant Education in Connecticut: An Introduction to the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program.
Kryza, Frank, T., II
The Connecticut Migratory Children's Program (CMCP), funded under the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I, aims to provide migrant children with: (1) the opportunity to improve communications skills necessary for dealing with various situations; (2) preschool and kindergarten experiences geared to each child's psychological and physical development that will help him to function successfully; (3) specially designed programs in the academic disciplines that will increase each child's ability to function at a level equal to his potential; (4) specially designed activities which will increase each child's social growth, positive self-concept, and foster his ability to function in groups; and (5) programs that will improve each child's academic and vocational skills and give him exposure to prevocational orientation. It also aims to implement programs, using Federal, State, and local resources, to improve mutual understanding and appreciation of cultural differences among children. CMCP operates (1) multipurpose resource centers which are operated throughout the year, and (2) summer enrichment programs, including a special program developed for children who are employed during the summer to harvest tobacco. Purpose of both programs is to supplement, but not supplant, the migrant child's educational opportunities, and to coordinate the health, cultural, social, and educational services. (NQ)
