Migrant Education Program

The Migrant Education Program in Imperial Valley serves around 7 thousand students with support like tutoring, college prep and online courses.

The children of migrant farmworkers sometimes face a life on the move that means their education is continually interrupted. The federal government helps them catch up and keep up through the Migrant Education Program.

Jill Replogle from our Fronteras Desk looks at how the program works today in one of Southern California's major agricultural areas.
