Fill Swings--Feed Minds: Report of the Fiscal 1975 Program for the Education of Children of Migrant Farmworkers in New York State.
Thompson, Tad
Goal of the New York State migrant education effort is to provide each eligible child supplemental education programs that will best meet his assessed needs. Designed to provide migrant children with worthwhile educational experiences while they are in the period of migration, the programs are linked to the work of other State agencies which provide services to migrant children. During fiscal year 1975, programs carried out by local educational agencies, Boards of Cooperative Educational Services, State University of New York units, and private agencies were funded. Although efforts to improve skills in reading, mathematics, and bilingual education were stressed, the programs undertaken aimed to improve health and nutrition, provide recreational activities, and bolster positive self-concepts. The programs undertaken included: a census project, Learn and Earn, Tutorial Outreach Program, summer school programs, Preschool Migrant Child Development Program, and Information Dissemination Project. Data on the children as they traveled from one state to another were obtained by use of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System. Attention was also given to inservice education in order that teachers and others concerned with improving the migrant child's education could have the opportunity to learn from those who are leaders in the field of migrant education.
