Summary

Professionals engaged in the field of migrant education need a strong central information network to provide information about various new developments in the field. Some of the functions of such a central network would be to (1) establish a clearinghouse and information center on programs, materials, personnel, events and other activities that are directly supported by migrant funds or are supportive of migrant efforts; (2) organize appropriate task forces or committees that would deal with relevant components of migrant education so that the profession would have an official voice at national, state and local meetings; (3) provide assistance to all major national, regional and state meetings to assure that the proceedings of these meetings are properly recorded and disseminated to the appropriate people; and (4) establish a professional association for migrant educators to voice their concerns, lobby for changes, and improve the quality of the profession and services to the children. The establishment of such a central network would contribute to the creation of a desperately needed organized line of communication for migrant educators. It would also eliminate a lot of duplication of services throughout the profession. This paper presents a detailed explanation of each of the functions of this proposed central network. Migrant Directors in each state are listed. (Author/NQ)
