Pennsylvania Migrant Education Evaluation Report, 1977.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Special and Compensatory Education.
An evaluation team visited each of nine program sites to evaluate Pennsylvania's summer migrant education programs. Evaluation criteria were based on the Eleven National Goals of Migrant Education, state goals (dealing with staff development, curriculum, communities, and administration), and local objectives which considered regional differences. Findings indicated satisfactory compliance with evaluation criteria in all programs, and changes in the migrant populations, i.e., decreasing numbers, increasing proportions of Spanish-speaking workers (especially Puerto Rican and Mexican migrants) and ever-growing population of five-year provisional migrants. The evaluation report contains individual project summaries, each of which gives background information, evaluation by local, state, and national objectives, reports on curriculum and supportive services, evaluation team recommendations and commendations, and concerns expressed by project personnel. The report summarizes statewide findings on curriculum, bilingual education, career and vocational education, and supportive services (health education, agency interaction, parental participation). A listing of the evaluative criteria used is included. Appendices contain material on the Migrant Teacher Resource Center, Migrant Student Record Transfer System, recruitment, and testing. (RS)
