Report Evaluates Migrant Education
Tougher academic requirements may drive the children of migrant farm workers from the classroom, a new report by the Education Commission of the States warns.
"Additional resources need to be applied to enable at-risk, migrant youth to cope with higher educational standards," write the authors of "Migrant4Education: A Consolidated View."
Free copies of the report--which also examines the history of migrant education in the United States--may be obtained by writing the Migrant Education Council, Education Commission of the States, 1860 Lincoln St., Suite 300, Denver, Colo. 80295.--dv
