Because of the increased interest in and current publicity given to the problems of agricultural migrant workers and their families, there has been a growing concern in the Nation regarding the lack of educational opportunities offered to migrant children. Since the programs for the education of children of migrant workers vary from State to State, it is the intent of this study to identify procedures of school organization and administration, and the educational problems encountered by the States participating in this survey. The chief State school officers in seven States--California, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Pennsylvania--were requested to cooperate in providing pertinent information on the problem of programs of education for migrant children. The study included those States which provided financial assistance to local school districts for the operation of summer schools and which had an enrollment impact of migrant children during the school year. This bulletin reports the findings, providing information on State organization and administration of migrant programs, migrant programs during the regular school year, summer programs, and recommendations for further research, and planning to improve the quality of education offered to these children. (Contains 12 footnotes and 9 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
