Migrant students face disadvantages in their academic performance because of the constant mobility of migrant families. A study was conducted in a largely Hispanic community on the Central Coast of California to determine whether migrant studentsâ€™ personal identity and academic achievement were being disrupted by their mobility. Migrant students and their families along with migrant educators were interviewed to collect qualitative data. The results showed that even though migrant students obtain physical and emotional support from the Migrant Education Program, their academic achievement and personal identity was constantly being challenged. In order to help mitigate these effects, the researcher attended parent workshops for migrant families to help with translation and provide support for migrant teachers by tutoring migrant students in English and Math.
