Research Report on Services to Preschoolers. Summary of Findings of the National Survey of State Migrant Education Programs.
National Preschool Coordination Project, San Diego, CA.; Research-able, Vienna, VA.
In spring 1991, the National Preschool Coordination Project sent a questionnaire regarding preschool services to all state migrant education programs. Over half of the states responded. Findings indicated that: (1) there is a need for improved identification and recruitment of migrant children aged 3-5 years; (2) the majority of jurisdictions offer needs assessment, emergency health, and social service referrals; (3) two in three jurisdictions offer parent training; (4) nearly one in two respondents thinks that less than half of identified children are currently receiving services; (5) current information and resources available to staff are judged to be somewhat or very inadequate by over 60 percent of respondents; (6) most states perceive a need for enhanced interstate coordination; and (7) the majority of respondents lack resources to facilitate interagency and interstate coordination and also lack curriculum in Spanish and other home languages. The report provides detailed findings for each survey question. (KS)
