Qualifying Work Activities in Louisiana: A Recruiter's Guide To Documenting Eligibility for Migrant Education. Louisiana Migrant Education Program.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Bureau of Migrant Education.
This manual was written as a guide for state migrant education recruiters who need to be familiar with the nature of seasonal and temporary work performed by Louisiana's migrating agricultural workers and fishing industry laborers. It is intended to teach recruiters about the agricultural and fishing activities necessary for raising and harvesting crops or fish and the time of the year in which they generally occur. The main purpose of this guide is to provide each migrant education recruiter with a precise and accurate vocabulary of work activities, for use in interviewing workers, fishers, growers, and processors. This should increase the recruiter's ability to determine migrant education program eligibility and strengthen documentation for the program. The agriculture section of the book includes information on 23 different crops, including cotton, rice, pecans, soybeans, sugar cane, hay, fruits, Louisiana citrus, strawberries, blueberries, crawfish, trees, fish farms, livestock, turf grass, nursery crops, vegetables, poultry, Christmas trees, tobacco, peaches, grain crops, and dairy products. The fishing section includes information on fish and shellfish. (TES)
