Issues and Interventions Influencing the Academic Outcomes for Migrant Students
Lamb, Gordon D.; Ochoa, Salvador Hector; De Alba, Roman Garcia
Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, v9 n1 p135-148 Aug 2006
This article provides an overview of the major factors and interventions affecting migrant students' academic performance/outcomes. Factors outside the school, such as poverty, family, and English language proficiency, are discussed. Next, factors inside the school, such as student records, credit accrual, and school curriculum, will be reviewed. In response to the factors that impede programs, many interventions have been used to assist migrant students. Interventions also used for nonmigrant students will be explained as related to use with migrant students. Specific interventions created for migrant students, such as the Migrant Education Program and collaboration between schools, will be examined. Discussion will conclude by explaining the differences between schoolwide and targeted interventions.
