    In answer to your question, I believe it is mandatory to have migrant education classes available for migrant students. Years ago, I was an ESL/Migrant teacher, and I am pretty sure that as long as a student's family migrats state to state (family who moved out-of-state to find agricultural work at least once every 2 (or maybe 3) years) the district was required to offer services. I do need to post the dis-claimer that I worked as an ESL teacher nearly 10 years ago, and am a little fuzzy on the specifics.

    I know what you are talking about though. There is a fine line between helping these kids survive while they are learning English, and enabling them to succeed even though they make no attempt to learn the language.

    I'm not sure that I answered your question...just know that many of us are frustrated too!
