The Migrant Education Program (MEP) started in 1966 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, it was known as the War on Poverty Program. The Office of Migrant Education recognized that the children of agricultural workers were sometimes neglected the same educational opportunities and academic success as other children in the same academic level. Our mission is to provide excellent leadership, technical assistance, and financial support to improve the educational opportunities and academic success of children, youth and agricultural workers. Some of the goals in the Migrant Education Program are to provide appropriate educational support. We help provide services to reduce educational disruptions and overcome challenges of mobility, cultural and language barriers, and isolation. We also assist with states curriculum, assessments, and graduation requirements. The MEP works with the schools and community to help migratory children meet the same high standards of all children in their schools. This program is to help provide many resources for the parents who work in agricultural work and their children.
