Report on Migrant Education Program: Leipsic, Ohio, Summer 1975.
Anderson, Alfred L.
To ascertain program effectiveness, a written attitude survey, consisting of 14 questions, was administered to 85 Mexican American children in grades K-8 during the first 5 days of the Leipsic summer program and to 85 children during the program's final 7 days to determine their attitudes toward themselves, their home schools, and the Leipsic School and summer program. Kindergarten children were given a short-form version of the survey. Constructed in both Spanish and English, the survey was administered bilingually when necessary. Indepth interviews with 50 children were recorded during the middle 7 weeks of the program to determine more specifically their attitudes toward self and school. Eighteen staff members were also interviewed to ascertain their perceptions of the children and of the program's effectiveness. Findings indicated: a highly significant difference between the way the children expressed feelings about themselves in a school context and the way they expressed them in a personal context, confusion of values in identification of self and as to the roles and values which two languages play in the children's lives, and the children had no clear concept of the role of education in their lives. Appendices include the survey questions and raw scores, a summary of interviews, and objectives of the Ohio migrant education program. (NQA)
