Cox, J. Lamarr; And Others
This document consists of three volumes representing a 3-year study of the Chapter 1 Migrant Education Program (MEP). The study used current and nationally representative data to address research questions related to program targeting, services, communications, and administration. Volume I presents study findings from mail questionnaires completed by state directors of migrant education and directors of 300 regular school-year and 200 summer-term MEP projects. It provides information concerning migrant student characteristics, MEP targets, services, communications, administration, and expenditures. Volume II contains summaries of case study reports of 25 local migrant projects. Site visits involved interviews with local migrant project directors and staff, school principals, migrant teachers, general and special education teachers, Chapter 1 basic personnel, bilingual personnel, and others who had substantive contact with migrant students or the migrant program. Each case study includes an introduction, followed by sections on students and targeting, program services, communication and coordination, expenditures, and administration. Volume III of the report consists of technical appendices, including: (1) details of sampling design; (2) study instruments and case study report outlines; (3) details of data preparation; and (4) forecasts of 1991-2000 enrollment in the MEP. The document contains numerous tables and graphs. (LP)
