Interstate Migrant Education Council (IMEC)
In an effort to keep the MEP community informed during the pandemic, I am sharing the paper “Education and Humanistic Issues Faced by Migrant Education Programs During times of Pandemic and Natural Disasters” written by IMEC Consultant Solomon (Sol) Kaulukukui former Hawaii State MEP director.  With the impact of COVID-19 IMEC will continue to address issues that impact migrant staff, students, parents and stakeholders in future papers and virtual presentations.
