New Regs for Migrant Education

Migrant advocates had hoped that the federal government would wait until reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act before coming out with new regulations for the federal migrant education program. No such luck. New regulations were published in the Federal Register on July 29.

See my article, "Stiffer Rules Issued on Migrant Education Program," about the regs published at edweek.org. Last summer I wrote about migrant students in Pennsylvania and learned that the federal migrant education program, which now serves about half a million students, sure does have a lot of rules.
