State Chapter 1 Migrant Participation and Achievement Information, 1992-93.
Henderson, Allison; And Others
This report summarizes participation and achievement data provided by state education agencies on the Chapter 1 Migrant Education Program (MEP) for 1992-93. The 1992-93 school year was marked by modest growth in the number of MEP participants. In both regular and summer terms, migrant participants were more likely to receive reading and mathematics than any other instructional service. Of 541,122 participants reported as an unduplicated count of regular and summer terms, 80 percent were Hispanic and 11 percent were White, not Hispanic. Fifty-seven percent were formerly migrant, 30 percent were currently migrant interstate, and 13 percent were currently migrant intrastate. Participation increased 2 percent overall, decreased 3 percent in the regular term, and increased 8 percent in the summer term. Four percent of participants were disabled, and 25 percent were limited-English-proficient. States reported achievement data in basic and advanced reading and mathematics for students in grades 2-12 using various norm-referenced models (one point in time, two points in time, and pretest/posttest models). Federal funding for Chapter 1 MEP was approximately $308.3 million, up 5 percent from the previous year. The allocation per participant was $570. Extensive data tables detail information for regular and summer terms on number, race or ethnicity, migrant status, age, gender, disability, and English proficiency of participants; services provided; full-time equivalent teachers and other staff; achievement results; and funding allocations by year and state. Appendices discuss program evaluation requirements, reporting problems, and methodology. (SV)
