Exploring Mobility Issues. Outreach Meeting Report (2nd, McAllen, Texas, November 14-15, 1988).
This document describes the Migrant Education Secondary Assistance Project's second outreach meeting, which was held in conjunction with an interstate counselors' workshop. The meeting, one of a three-part series, addressed student mobility, the most perplexing problem of migrant youth. Mobility is the major characteristic that makes migrant students different from their classmates and other youth at risk. Although much has been done to deal with general mobility problems, individual attention is still required for students who move from school to school. Participants in this meeting identified problems and solutions that they encountered in dealing with migrant youth. In most cases, the suggested solutions required programmatic changes in either school district policy or migrant education program assistance. In other cases, solutions indicated the need for ongoing and increased interstate coordination. Recommendations include improvement of secondary services; a national portable assisted study program and a credit make-up system; enhancement of the Migrant Student Record Transfer System; and improved identification and recruitment of secondary students at risk.
