Posted: Wed, 09/28/2011 - 12:17pm Updated: Fri, 03/28/2014 - 2:42pm

Title I, Part C Migrant Education Program (MEP) of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 supports high quality education programs for migratory children (ages 3-21) and helps ensure that migratory children who move among the states are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. The MEP is designed to help migratory children overcome educational disruption, cultural and language barriers, social isolation, various health-related problems, and other factors that inhibit the ability of such children to do well in school, and to prepare such children to make a successful transition to postsecondary education or employment.
