MIGRANTS' SCHOOL SUBSIDY URGED From Our National Bureau WASHING I O N - Federal allotments to school districts "impacted" by the children of migrant farm workers \vrre proposed to C o n g r e s s Wednesday. The special support was urged by Rep. Burt L. Ta!- cott, R-Calif., in testimony before the House Education and Labor Committee. Talcott urged a plan iimilar to the 19-year-old program for school districts "impacted" by immigration of families resulting from Federal activities. The congressman, whose (iisiru-i has . large population of eas(jna! f a t s n workers, urged a federal allotment of S500 annually for each migrant sdiudl child. 'I his amount could lie p;orated amir:« the school districts in which tlip child aitended classes during the year. The committee received the suggestion wilii more enthusiasm than a proposal last year by Talcott to allot S500 per child to every district with migrant students. This proposal died in committee. Talcoit pointed out ihat his new proposal would be less expulsive and could utilize ;!ie administrative procedures perfected in:- !c-i the program for federally impacted district 1 -. lluweu'i. lie proposed it as ji: amendment to 'he bask Elementary ami Soi- ondjty Education Act Milter t'n.m t h e Imp-Tied Schools .V.t. which hai i'i-en under a t t a c k for the past several years. But he declared that districts having to cope with sudden influxes of migrant children have a greater problem t h a n those which must accoino- date the children of m i l i - ia:y mer. ur defense w u i k e:s " I l i e agrkt:lli:rai cniii- Hi'.iMtics actually suffer m i u l i :!!)!r because the i n f l u x of siudents vanes niucli mure, thr student '.ii'nover is much ;r£«lc-i .;iid the general caliber of the- students is woefully interior." ' l a k u i i contended. "The enrollment of some schools increases by as much as 50 per cent or more for a few weeks or months during the planting or harvest seasons." he said, pointing out thai s u c h increases seriously disrupt t h e education of t h e full-term students. ""I he migrant children invariably need special ci.'inpensatory education." ,iic! Talcoit. pointing out that this is "difficult and expensive" to provide. He rapped "hastily concocted schemes" involving portable classrooms and r,iner.-iit teachers. Movable school? are limited in function and expensive, I,tiro-: said.
