What are the unique problems of providing schooling for a population on the move? How does education compare with the more common experience of remaining in one school for ten months a year, every year? This book describes the demographics of migrant workers and probes the attendant economic, political, sociological and language issues. It provides a comprehensive look at education for migrant children, youth, and adults in the United States, with emphasis on the impact of migration on students, their learning and their success in the completion of programs, as well as the impact of migrants on local schools.

The book also describes how the U.S. Department of Education, state education departments, school districts, schools, and other agencies are meeting the special needs of this population of students, with emphasis on successful and innovative migrant programs and services.
