Nearly 400,000 students whose families have moved back and forth between Mexico and the United States in the past three years to secure agricultural jobs are being served by U.S. schools, according to the 2005-06 annual report of the Binational Migrant Education Program.

The program, a cooperative effort between state and federal education officials in the United States and Mexico, runs several projects for this subset of the nation’s migrant students. For instance, in a teacher exchange run by the binational program, 231 teachers visited the United States from Mexico during the summer of 2006 to work with migrant students, and 57 teachers or administrators from the United States visited Mexico.

To request an electronic copy of the report, “Binational Migrant Education Program Annual Report, 2005-2006,” send an e-mail to ab29@txstate.edu.
