Vocke, Karen; Westine, Carl; Applegate, Brooks; VanDonkelaar, Ilse Schweitzer
Journal of Latinos and Education, v15 n3 p157-169 2016
This survey and interview-based study examined the perspectives of 30 of the 38 migrant directors in Michigan, covering 26 summer migrant programs. Among the findings of this study were an unexpected inverse relationship between the size of programs and the frequency and number of external services and referrals they are able to provide for students; a widespread concern with interstate credit accrual and communication between state programs as well as differences in program directors' perceptions of the ease of interstate communication; and a generally positive response to the suggestion of a new statewide evaluation protocol for migrant programs.
