      SPEAKER 1: Alex, when you were speaking to my classa few minutes ago, you mentioned a differencethat you had noticed in what you termed classicversus modern migrant families.But can you explain that a little bit?

    • 00:19

      ALEX: Sure.What I've seen working with the migrant education program isthat the classic migrant families,these are families that have a very strongagricultural background.They often move from one school district to the other,from one state to the next.

    • 00:40

      ALEX [continued]: And they're always looking for agricultural jobs.One example-- I have one family, they came from Texas,and they moved to Florida seeking job with oranges.Then they moved to Georgia, south Georgia,to work with Vidalia onions.And so this is what we call a typical classic migrant family.

    • 01:01

      ALEX [continued]: They have a very strong agricultural background.The modern migrant families-- theseare families that don't necessarilyhave this strong of an agricultural background,but times are tough.They need to find a job.They need to relocate and find another job,so they move and usually end up finding a job with the poultry

      ALEX [continued]: plants or any other kind of agricultural joblike that that is temporary.And so this is what I call more of a modern migrant families.And these families are usually moreprone to establish themselves wherever they end up as opposedto the more traditional migrant families.

    • 01:45

      ALEX [continued]: They're always moving.

    • 01:47

      SPEAKER 1: But in both cases, if I understood you correctlyearlier, both of these families and their childrenhave a three year window of services.

    • 01:57

      ALEX: Right.Right.Once they do what we call a qualifying move-- and this isa move from one school district to the otherin order to seek or obtain a job in agriculture thatis temporary-- they get three years of servicesfrom there, until the next qualifying move.And they can move anywhere.

    • 02:17

      ALEX [continued]: They could start in Athens receiving migrant servicesand then go to Maine and get the same servicesthat they're receiving here in Athens.

      SPEAKER 1: Thank you.
