Abstract:

The American goal of an adequate opportunity for each child to receive an education commensurate with his capabilities is an ideal more nearly achieved in some sections of our society than in others. One group for which this goal remains remote are children whose parents move about the country performing seasonal work in industrial agriculture. The movement are agricultural workers and the educational problems created are not limited to any one area, and are of concern throughout the country. This book, while aimed at public school personnel--teachers, principals, superintendents and administration--and institutions wherein teachers are trained, it should also prove useful to national, regional, and local agencies, organizations and groups who work for the improvement in the lives of migrant farm workers and their families.
