After Ten Years of Progress, Then What in Migrant Education. The Annual Eastern Stream Regional Conference for Migrant Education (7th, Virginia Beach, Virginia, March 7-12, 1976). A Report.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
The conference had three stated major goals: (1) to provide an opportunity for migrant personnel to share and exchange information in mutual areas of concern; (2) to promote interstate cooperation and to ensure continuity of interstate programs for migrant children; and (3) to promote esprit de corps of the conference by the use of the keynote speaker. Specific objectives for meeting each goal were identified by the type of sessions planned. Group discussions were held on successful programs in the areas of: reading-language arts; mathematics; bilingual education; career education and awareness; movement education, art and music; preschool; health services; administrators; librarians and media specialists; interagency cooperation and community involvement; and terminal operators. Rationale, objectives, conclusions and agreements were determined in each group discussion. The 522 participants were from the 20 eastern states as well as Arizona and California. An evaluation summary, group evaluation sheet, and a needs assessment summary are appended. (JD)
