Providing Opportunities: Report of the Fiscal 1974 Program for the Education of Children of Migratory Agricultural Workers in New York State.
Goal of the New York State migrant education effort is to provide each eligible child supplemental educational programs which will best meet his assessed needs. Efforts are undertaken to: (1) improve skills in reading, mathematics, and bilingual education; (2) improve health and nutrition; (3) provide recreational activities; and (4) bolster positive self-concepts. Among services available to migrant children are tutorial instruction, summer schools, regular school supplemental programs, health education, bilingual education, career experiences for adolescents, and early childhood development programs. These educational programs are linked to the work of other state agencies which provide services to migrant children. During fiscal year 1973-74, emphasis was on identifying eligible children and on providing them priority educational programs. First priorities in meeting their educational needs were those of reading, mathematics, and bilingual education. Tutorial outreach programs, designed to meet the needs of small numbers of children scattered throughout many school districts, were expanded in order to involve identified migrant children in priority programs. Other activities during the year included a census project, career experiences, use of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, in-service education, parental involvement, and interstate cooperation.
