A Plan for Analysis and Recommendations - Interregional Coordination: Migrant Services.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The report presents the rationale and plan for Phase I of a projected six-month study of the problems associated with the coordination of migrant services. Objectives of Phase I were to produce a preliminary planning guide which provided a compendium of research, survey, and demonstration projects at the state and national levels, included a plan for a short term study and assessment with a time-table of scheduled tasks for implementation of the plan, and identified legislation affecting the migrant farm population. The study plan was designed around four major areas: education, health, employment and job training, and other social services. Each of these areas was studied in terms of Federal, regional, state, and local applications. The research design was a basic 4x5 matrix, with each cell examined across five levels of participation and involvement: Federal, state, regional, local and individual (the migrants themselves). Each cell also represented a major study objective. The main research thrust was to determine which cell indicated success toward coordination or magnified lack of coordination. To facilitate discussion of the study plan, each major activity is discussed in terms of an objective; pertinent information, rationale for inclusion, funding data, etc.; proposed task statements; and schedule of tasks. Also included are a brief discussion of the relevant legislation, the review of literature on coordination, a 70-item annotated bibliography, and brief descriptions of six Federal agencies which provide funding for adult and family programs.
