Education and the Children of Migrant Farmworkers: An Overview.
Cardenas, Jose A.
Children of migrant farmworkers have the highest dropout rates, the lowest achievement levels, and the most failures. Performances of migrant children deviate so drastically from the norm that common evaluation techniques are not even valid for this group. Attempts to measure performance in school are consistently invalidated due to the migrant's absence during testing periods, difficulty in attaining test-post test scores, inability of the tester to speak the language of the children and the difficulty of establishing test rapport. However, these are not the only problems faced by the migrant children. This paper presents a brief overview of other unique problems faced by these children. These are: segregation in school, school finance, instructional programs, staffing, dysfunctional responses to their problems, and the response by other social institutions. (NQ)
